Wow! You've taken an average pattern and made an outstanding - amazing - dress. The whole look is smashing. Love the red belt - and the rest of the styling. Your photos are a treat to look at.

You're just way too clever. I would not have looked at that pattern ever but you definitely made it into something way better. Love the red belt too. Always look forward to see what you've made :-)
