Wow, thats very striking. You did a wonderful job matching those seams. Great job with those pockets, why didn't they think of that? I too must have pockets so I will definitely refer back to this.

OMG!!! You did such a cool design idea here. So Cool I think Vogue pattern magazine should feature this!!! I love everything you did. A fabulous job with reusing the jeans was totally clever!

Amazing - love that it's all from recycled jeans, too! Best refashion of old jeans that I've ever seen, in fact. Fantastic work.

I love the wise idea of pockets; yes, the pattern really begs for them. Your dress is lovely.
