I think you fabric for this dress is wonderful. You have the perfect figure for this style too - lucky you! Terrific dress all 'round.

I agree--clothes on a hanger are never as pretty as on the person. And thank you for the comment! That was just the encouragement I needed to continue with my dream ;)

Gorgeous dress -- I admired it when you first put up photos on the hanger. Let me just say those photos didn't do it justice. Looks amazing on you. You are a very talented teenager. I too had the costume designer dream as a teenager. Now almost 40 years later, I'm living my dream. Good luck with yours.

Thank you! Yep, teenage sewer :) I'd like to go into costume design. Sewing isn't just for women after 50 anymore! No offense, anyone!

This is so much prettier and stylish than the envelope. You have done a wonderful job. And it is perfect for day or evening. Love vintage.
