This is a divine dress Rachel, beautifully made...the drape and pattern of the fabric really suits the design of the dress... and you look divine in it.

I love your dress. It's light and whimsical and looks just beautiful on you (and your vintage photo was a very nice touch!).

Great job! Your photo shoot is amazing, but the dress really stands on its own. Your fabric choice and belt are perfect. Yes, it's vintage but also perfetly up-to-date, too! You look wonderful in your dress. Enjoy!

Thank you everyone for your lovely comments! DesignsbyDenise -- the photos were taken at the end of my street in a park that is bordered by the most amazing heritage houses.

The dress turned out beautifully. And I love the sepia-toned photo. I think I might do that with my entry as well. Makes it look perfect! Where did you take the photos? The building is really neat,and the gardens are a perfect photo-opp spot!
