    I really like what you did to the back. I am new here, so could you please tell me how I can get the pattern for your dress, or do I just have to get the actual Danielle pattern and try to figure it out myself? I may add, I am brand new in sewing

    Oh I really like what you have done here. I have been looking for a pattern that would give this type of shape. I must try Danielle.bx
