I was wondering how you found fabric like that! Great idea to paint!

Wow! I never thought anybody would recreate this dress (the fabric!) That's so clever of you to paint the fabric! Great knock off!

I love that you hand painted it! Nice to know that you won't meet anyone on the street wearing your same dress :D

What a great little dress! Every once in a while we should all do something totally out of our comfort zone and this seems to have done that for you. Great job with the painting, I never would have guessed that the fabric did not come just that way. And it looks adorable on you!

It's simply amazing that you painted the fabric. Perfect summery dress!!!

Thanks! I added a little section detailing more about the painting in case anyone was curious and wanted to try it themselves.

Absolutely fantastic idea to paint your own fabric

That is really awesome! I too was wondering (before reading your review) how you managed to find fabric so similar to the inspiration dress. I love the style, and you sure did a fantastic job at painting your fabric. :)

This is a gorgeous dress and the hand painting looks amazing.

Wow, you painted the fabric yourself! It makes sense - I hadn't got as far as wondering how you managed to get a fabric that was so similar. The dress fits you really well and it certainly doesn't look like it gave you trouble.

Wow, I am impressed. I would never thought to paint fabric like you did. You managed to copy and yet be creative at the same time. I like your fabric better. And you look very cute in it. I don't think it looks like you've made mistakes. Great job!

What a fantastic dress. Even more fantastic when I read how you made it.
