Love your fabric - do see if you can post a photo of the dress. If you can, do bump it back to the top of the list (don't click the 'minor edit' button)

Hi Caitlin, congrats on your first review. The fabric looks lovely, but I cannot enlarge the thumbprint. (And unfortunately, I cannot help you with instructions, as I don't know how to do it!) I'm sure a more savvy PR-er can help you. Would love to see your dress.
