First, your photo is art worthy. Secondly, I almost fainted (with delight) when I saw your fabric and how you'd configured the various design features on your dress. Outstanding! A bit of glamour, a bit of kitsch. Extraordinary, Lily

How fun! Excellent choices in matching the pattern to the fabric, and then the fabric to the pieces. Looks like lots of picnics in the future for this dress.

Never would I have thought to recycle or repurpose fabrics like you do. You design wonderfully creative and fun garments. Your dress is fun and funky and it fits so well. You have truly mastered fitting. Wear it with a smile!

Fantastic choice of fabric for this dress - You make me think of going to outdoor car shows on breezy summer days - you would be the Star there. Porsche should have you on the cover of their brochures - you look fantastic.
