      Thank you very much. I guess I have no special editing skills, it’s just http://www.picnik.com/ – it does everything for you :))

    The new dress is cute on you, but it was cute before too! It had good bones to begin with!

      Thank you ;)
      I think that the fabric is quite nice to sew, as it doesn’t need the inslide facings and lining :)

    I love the little v-neck dip in the back! You made this dress yours! Way to go!

      Thank you! I have a weakness for back v-necks and just couldn’t resist making one here :)
