Great dress! It is beautiful and looks so great on you. I love when you can omit a zipper on anything! Thanks for you review.

The fuzzy trim on the neckline really shows your knack for creativity, it adds that glance of no ordinary dress. I may have to look at trim at Joann's in a whole new way. Love the whole look you gave this simple dress.
