    This is so lovely and simple. I’m making a dress with the same bodice (using your How to…thanks for that!) But am not sure how to do the skirt of it. Am trying to drape it at the moment! Do you have a bodyform? I envy your looks and the fact that you are so photogenic. Hop my photo’s are half as good as yours! Happy sewing xx

    hi! i absolutely love all of your designs and dresses. it’s amazing to see how you could almost create anything with no pattern. i’m not the most amazing at sewing but I’m have a sewing day with a friend of mines I just wanted to know if you have any tips of making this dress, like how to keep it up, what you used to close the dress up on the back, or sewing tips when making the dress.. with seams or sewing. Or anything with sewing the buttons and such.

    thannnks a lot & i will continue to check up on your latest updates. :)

    Cute dress. It’s looks adorable on you! Did you make the same opening in the back like you did on the white one? How much fabric did you use (in metres)? :)

    With you it is the full package—the sewing is impeccable, the technique is unique, and the presentation is professional and just as creative as the product. All of this leaves us wanting to see more. Great job! Thanks for the howto.
