Very nice work here! I don't know how long it would have taken me to notice that the design on the fabric was birds! I like it and I love the orange contrast. Very unique!

Amazing dress! I like that you solved the problem of not enough width by using another fabric. It looks like an intentional design element. Its good to see a busy print find its pattern.

Oh wow, this is phenomenal-I love the dress design, the fabric you used and the overall drapiness. You look great in this and I am interested to see if I would too :-)

Love your dress and the drape is beautiful! I've only sewn once from a Japanese sewing book - yours is exquisite!

So gorgeous! Your addition of the orange was inspired. I didn't realize a Drape Drape 3 had come out--I'm going to have to look for it!
