    Gorgeous dress. I never would have guessed it was from a curtain if you hadn’t said so. The shiney fabric really makes it look fancy.

    Very Scarlet O’Hara in Gone With The Wind (making the dress out of a curtain I mean!) Beautiful!

    Ah, I love this dress. The color is beautiful. Too bad the pics are cropped. But if you change the size of the pictures, we would be able to see your dress in all its glow.

    YOUR hem looks like it was sewn PERFECTLY! Along with your ruffles which look so heavy and lush. The tailoring is perfect and absolutely beautiful on you! Bravo!
