Wow! this is really one of a kind! Great creation!...I would really love to wear one like this....this 'rare' piece would come with a 'high' price elsewhere...

What an ingenious design! I would have never in a million years thought to use a T-shirt as a dress/skirt, and here you've made a one-of-a-kind designer piece. As for the orange, I think you should wear more of it!

What an innovative design! It makes for such a pretty, standout dress, much better than the plain, 'ol ordinary pattern photo!

You look so adorable in this dress. The colors are fabulous. It looks like a Marc Jacob designer dress. Good job!

Love it! You've taken Laura Ashley to a new (and better) level IMHO. I really like reading your reviews as you're shaped much like I am. I know if it works for you it will work for me. Keep 'em coming! Thanks!

Thanks for all the kind words everyone! It's funny, but when I started this project, I just had a strong vision of what colors I wanted to use to go with the t-shirt skirt portion. And I told DH that it would either turn out to be extremely cute...or utterly disastrous.

DH, by the way, was the one that suggested the brown and orange trim around the bottom of the skirt to disguise the plain t-shirt hem.

Mahogany Stylist is so right ... this is SO runway! Killer, killer chic! Love the color combinations - your DH also has a good eye. I hope you'll wear this often as you look drop dead gorgeous. -Lily

This is a terrific dress on you. Original use of materials that make a very stylish dress out of a rather ordinary pattern.
