    wow! This is super-great, and I LOVE the idea of using material from clothes I already have in my wardrobe— when you’re doing something like that, is there a way to cut apart the clothing so that the most possible can be used? Any pointers would be very welcome!

    This is gorgeous, simple colours yet it works & looks really good! You’ve done amazingly if this is your first creation! I’m a beginner and looking to make this dress, was it difficult?
