How refreshing that someone so young is sewing and is so talented! Great job! Bubble skirts are so 'in' right now, too.

I LOVE IT! I LOVE IT!I LOVE IT! Amazing - self drafted -WOW! The instructions you provided are very clear, and explain your method very well. West Side Story? Yes! I can see that inspiration - When I firsted enlarged the photo, my first thought was, "wow, very 'retro' " my second thought was "wow, you Designed and Drafted and Constructed this all from your imagination!!" - ok, I'm a little jealous... but, you definitely have TALENT! Your work and ideas and "just do it" attitude are very inspiring and liberating. Now, I want to try to draft up some dresses of my own! I just can't say enough! Beautiful Dress; Great Talent and Creativity! I look forward to the next one! -Victoria

Great job! The top fits great, and I love the black lace over the gold lame.
