    Gorgeous! I can’t believe I just found your work! It’s amazing! The more I sew, the more I feel like I still need to learn… but that’s part of the joy of sewing, right? X^D

    Wow, everything looks spectacular! And great that the pics have been taken in HK. I was there 6 years ago for 3 months and really enjoyed being part of this busy city.

    Brilliant. I love using fabrics for something other than what they were meant for. Looking at that dress, your win was definitely deserved.

      I use all sorts of things when i make theatre costumes and upholstery fabrics are my fave for getting beautiful design details without the expense. You really have done a wonderful job with colours. I am assuming textures came into it as well. Wow again.
