      Your fabric is even more gorgeous than the pic on the pattern. I will try to enlarge the pattern by 1 or 2 sizes when i make it :D x

      Thanks a lot! That’s pity, because it is a very nice style :) It took me a while to sew this because I made it of net jersey…!

    Oh wow. I loved this pattern when I saw it in the magazine but I love it even more now. Synthetic satin was the only thing I wasn’t sure about. This is perfect fabric. I bet its so cool. :-)

    it looks beautiful and well-made. The print on the fabric is perfect for this dress. It’s very summery and cheerful, but also elegant.

    Dance at the fire! Very beautiful, you look like tropical princess:) Thin fabric gave better draping and fitting so it is +.
