    Thanks for pointing to the full pic— it was hard to get a sense of the original without it! But great knockoff. I really like that criss-cross in the front, and I’m amazed at how close to the original fabric you got!

    ooh i am so intrigued… i love your color choices… maybe your pic is too large to come up fully? is it 400px wide?

    Could you please show the full view (at least of your dress). It looks very interesting but even on pattern review I only find a small picture…

    Really Cute I love the stripe on the bottom it gives the impression of pleats.
