You're so lucky to have such a great sewing assistant in your daughter. It's true that two heads are better than one, and sometimes you end up with two dresses too!

Thank you. I am working on another one... dark grey w/ minimal abstract design and the reverse side a red stretch satin. I really wanted the reverse side to be a deep burgandy, but the red has the same crosswise stretch only which is the same as the grey, wherein the burgandy has 4 way stretch.

Brilliant, just brilliant. Love the print side but we all need the LBD too. Great travel dress too.

Oh, you are so clever! I love both views, but think the print side is smashing on you.

Love the dress, and how clever that you made it reversible! I would never have guessed, it's executed so well. And the fit is great, very nice dress!
