It's beautiful and such a great silhouette on you. A yard and a half? Really--you can't ask for more.

You'll find this hilarious, but we're totally going to be twinners. I bought the EXACT same fabric for this dress! LOL. You look gorgeous, Lovely. :)

Oh Darci, you're so funny! I saw it when I was at Fabric Depot a few weeks ago. Guess we better not take a PP class together and both wear our dresses! lol
