Another gorgeous creation that looks terrific on you. I like the yellow shoes & hat with the dress & the red lining - what a fun, interesting outfit. The criss-crossed draped front reminds me of one of the Spring 2011 Donna Karan patterns - the one with the lady wearing a red dress.

Another gorgeous dress! The pattern looks nice enough, but your dress inspires me to possibly make it. May I ask if you are long waistedbin the body? I'm not, and worry how such details will play out on my frame? Particularly I like the interesting fabric that you chose.

Perfect for the symphony, this is outstanding. The fabric looks very complex in colors and the jacquard looks like a match for the style. You did an excellent job sewing this dress.

This is simply stunning! You did such a gorgeous job of it! Sigh... that fabric is so beautiful! I adore the bustle like gathering in the back and the front is equally fantastic. Really you've outdone yourself! Breathtaking! xoxo, Sunni
