cheap taffeta and some sequins

    Oooh! That looks great!

    What did you use to attach the ribbon to lace up the back?

    This dress looks beautiful! I really love the sequin detailing, for a little touch of sparkly pizzaz.

    This is really nice. If this is your first dress, and you did this well, I’m sure we’ll all be seeing a lot more of your creations soon! :)

    Great job! I love how you made it your own with the sequin detail and the ribbon ties in the back. You did a great job with the fit too. I love the color.
