    wow Bows! I just read you bio and it says you started sewing summer 09!!!! You have a real gift and great personal style…lucky you :) keep up the good work.

    BTW did you do the structuring of the fabric in the skirt on this dress because it really makes it?

      did I do it or how did I do it?
      I did by just pinching pieces of the fabric and pulling it under itself and then hand tacking the pieces in place…it was very time consuming! but I think it was worth the results! :)
