I also love the way you used your border print for this. You dress really makes the pattern versatile!

Such a wonderful fabric would be tough to get the right pattern for but you picked a winner. It looks designer-special. Brava!

Exquisitely stunning dress! I adore the length on you, showcasing your gorgeous legs. BTW: Your specified sewing level is incorrect.

Walmart you say? I'm shocked! I could even run down to my local Walmart and maybe find some!!! You made this fabric and outfit look like $$$$$$ and high end designer. Kudos to you!

Gorgeous looking dress! I love the fabric as well. You did a wonderful job laying it out.

Thank You for the Fabulous compliments.. I am blushing :) After Sherril asked where could she get the fabric, I returned to Walmart in an attempt to purchase more of the fabric to do a give away. Unfortunately, the bolt wasn't there...humbug. I asked the sales clerk about it and she remembered the print and stated fabrics go very fast here. Again, Thank You!
