Your combination of colors is fabulous! Great idea to add the pockets.

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

Thanks for all the gorgeous comments! SewLibra, there is a link to my blogpost at the end of this review, where there are pictures of the front and back view of my dress :)

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

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!

That's totally fantastic. I never would have thought of using denim and corduroy. Wow.

What an ingenious project all the way around!

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.
