This dress is so beautiful! I also think it's an improvenment on the inspiration. Great eye to see that this pattern could do this!

Wow, amazing dress! Like everyone else, I agree that yours looks even better than the inspiration dress. You drafted the skirt and sleeves yourself?! I think this is well passed advanced beginner work! :D

I'm with many of the other commenters. I like your version much better than your inspiration piece. Well done.
marjoriekh said... (8/7/11 10:19 AM) Reply
Like many others, I think you outdid the inspiration dress. Yours is much more ethereal-looking. And with your coloring, you and the dress do each other justice. Fantastic job knocking this off!

Stunning! Your dress is far more beautiful than the one Michelle Williams wore and the red lace/tulle you found is to die for. Fabulous work!
