    SCAD Fashion Show ’07, yes? I recognize this dress! (and the doll theme of the photo) Great work. It is beautiful and an original fit. (Also, as a fashion candidate at SCAD myself, much love)

    For those of you that can’t see the pic, try a right click over the picture area and click “copy” and open Microsoft Word and do a paste in Word. It worked for me, hope it works for you. Gorgeous Dress!!

    If you can’t view the image you could try right-clicking on the image area and choosing “View Image” or “Show Picture”. It is a HUGE file. Over 1MB. Maybe your browsers timed out waiting for it?

    it looks great! Is it hard to make? I am a Newbie and would like to attempt to make it, but do you think it would be overwhelming? Maybe I should make a few more aprons and bags before graduating to this? I like the pockets especially. great job!

    Really love it. Would definately buy such a pattern. Any chance of a back view please? Any chance of a version with long sleeves for England where it is cold around 9 or 10 months of the year? This dress is amazingly striking. Well done!

    I figured it out. On IE, the picture won’t load. If you have Firefox it will. Beautiful dress & colour.

    For some reason, I can’t see the picture. And I’ve tried from 2 computers already. :( Could you possibly reupload it maybe?
