I've been looking at this pattern and didn't get it. I'll have to rethink that now I see how well it makes up. Great job on the fabric too.

Wow, that's a smokin' hot outfit you've got on there! I love the fact that you added the wild pink color to the fabric . . . totally changes the vibe of the dress (in a fabulous way)!!!

Brilliant idea, fabulous dress! I tried painting fabric once, years ago, but it was poly and the paint washed out almost completely the first washing. I know not to paint poly now.........only natural fibers, but I havn't tried it again.

I love every single detail. This is a super-charged dress!! That pink fabric paint was a brilliant idea and you've pulled it all together perfectly with the wide belt and shoes. Congratulations on your first review -- it's a knockout -- and I look forward to many more!

You look very glamorous in this dress. I like the urban graffiti backdrop--like a fancy fashion shoot. What fun to paint the fabric with your daughter.

Gorgeous dress on you, in a great fabric. I've looked at this pattern and thought that, with a waistband added, it 's a great skirt, too.
