I've always loved the humour of Bjork's dress - and the dress itself. Yours is just as wonderful, I never would have seen that pattern as a base for something like this.

wish I could put photos into comments, I have a picture of Marlene Dietrich dressed in the swan from Leda and the Swan. It has to be in the 1940's or 50's

This is outrageously cool! You are clever to create this from a dress pattern.

FABOO! I thought I was the only person on earth who really liked that dress when Bjork first wore it, so I have kept my mouth shut all these years. I LOVE YOURS!!

Brilliant! I may have to copy you next year. Will you get an egg purse to go with it?

Brilliant. I think you may have to carry this on separately. How can you think of squishing it???

It's only Bjork and you who can carry off this dress, I wish I could see this dress closely in well done!!!

Wow, I am so impressed that you could see a swan dress from that pattern. Your creativity and vision astounds me.. and the dress is pretty cool too. I have to ask though, where will you wear such a dress?

Ooh, this is SO Leda and the Swan (the Greek myth). Tittillating!

That's inspired! Are you planning to wear this just for Halloween, or do you have new career plans in mind?
