      awww…that just raises the bar and I’ll end up doing nothing for fear of not being able to be just as good:(

      THANK YOU SO MUCH!

      but I’ll take the challenge!;)

      Thank you so much for your generous comment;) For my shop I plan to make a shirt which will have most of the elements of this dress- that as soon as my dressform arrives, not that it’s really related, but I just can’t think of anything else till then:)

    WOW! It has SO much going on and yet it all ties together beautifully! I love the use of folds and pleats in unexpected places! So beautifully constructed!!!

    LOVELY, AS USUAL. YOUR PROJECTS ARE AMAZING ALL THE TIME, BUT WHAT I LIKE THE MOST IS THAT YOU ALWAYS HAVE A SURPRISE ON THE BACK.

    It is very beautiful dress. This remind me about Senator Amidala in ‘’Star Wars’’ :) Meanwhile im wondreing if you would discover more about using another type of fabric for your amazing dress?

      thanks Jenny! I’d say cotton works best! I used cotton – blended. Thin denim would be awesome.

      It became relatively complicated… especially as I made it as I went along… the initial sketch had a simpler fuller skirt with a few pleats and I changed my mind last minute – I’m glad I did!
