Wow - I looked at your blog and this looks way better on you than on the runway model! That's an interesting skirt - you did a beautiful job.

I wish your photo showed more detail- sounds like it's really unique and cute! One thing I apprecaite about your reviews is that we have some strong similiarities in our body shapes (tall and curvy), so you help me know which patterns will look good on me.

Very beautiful, Erica. I think that was very wise to go up a size to ensure opulent draping, and its effect is most elegant. Love your addition of the narrow belt to emphasize your curves. Lovely, Lily
