    opps- sorry- I accidently gave your dress a rating of 2 (finger slipped) – it’s a FIVE. I love the dress! and am looking to make something like this and use a cool vintage ’70’s trim. How lucky you are to live in France.

      No worries, thanks for mentioning it! I kind of wondered what happened :D

      Your idea sounds great! This pattern would be perfect for a 70s trim. I’d love to try it with a nifty wide patterned ribbon too.
