    I love this dress and I love your work! This dress reminds me of the lead singer out of Sneaky Sound System (Aussie band) she wears these types of dresses you even have similar hair which makes it even more so! I love it!!!!!

    This one’s my favorite! I need a pattern or ah ow-to, or something! Anything! I need to know how to copy you. Shamelessly. This is drop dead gorgeous, Oona.

    Amazing fabric and it so suits the style you’ve created. I love the way you’ve matched the side seams with the pattern – very clever placement.

    Love your dress. Read your blog. Lovvvvve your story. There is nothing more thrilling to me than beautiful fabric. Ok there are a couple of exceptions- a bargain, good food, sex … etc. Ok, I have a lot things that thrill me but beautiful cheap fabric is definitely at the top. I say you had a super birthday week with your lucky fabric find and prolific sewing and designing.
