You must have the patience of Job to do all that ruffling...by hand, even. Nice job!!

Shindig was one of Kaylee's best episodes. Your dress captures her perfectly - So obliviously innocent. Great work!

I've seen costumes of this character at Dragon Con, was that you? (I'm a harry potter gal) I did not know there was Poly dye! Great to know that. That dress looks fab! I know what a pain tons of ruffles are. A labor of costume and fandom love for sure.

Amazing Kaylee dress. I knew it was her dress right away, even in the tiny preview photo. You totally deserve all those awards!!!

"Shindig" is one of my favorite episodes, and your dress absolutely takes the cake! Wonderful recreation!

LOL I didn't even count really. The bodice took one day, that was the easy part. The Skirt and Petticoat took probably... 20 hours total since 90% of it was hand gathered. I'm a speed demon, but I spaced it out from December to early February due to the holiday madness.
