    I adore the way this fits and the seams in the front! It looks so natural yet fitted, like dancewear or something!

    It really is beautiful and I’m even more impressed since you’ve made the pattern yourself (an art I don’t master). It will be great for summertime events!

    Great job making the pattern! And sewing knit neatly…

    That would be a great idea. I think we would all love it, if you could upload the pattern or write a “how to” make it. It looks great!

    Absolutely gorgeous… the style reminds me a bit of American Apparel, but I never thought the color would work so well.

    Another cute dress! Keep up the good work. Did you use patterns for your dresses or make it up yourself?
