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 :-)

You are just fabulous Mimi, and quite the inspiration! I enjoy all your photos and reviews. I just watched your very helpful obi belt tutorial and have now printed off the pattern :)
