      Thank you so much! I did a rough estimation. It probably took me around 30-36 hours to sew this, all spread out over a month.

      Thank you! The fabric is from taobao, China’s version of ebay but I’ve seen it before on etsy before at a more expensive price.

    This green 3D lace dress is absolutely beautiful and you look stunning. I too loved this pattern and plan to make it for a special occasion that I am going to attend so you have really inspired me to go ahead and get it sewn in plenty of time, I case I need to spend time reposition some of the lace motifs.
