holy crap! my jaw just hit the floor! I had seen your pattern when you posted that and I'm soooo glad you were able to make the dress you wanted. The diamond accents are brilliant! The back strap is my favorite part of the dress. Good Job, Loooooove it!
I don't know if you've seen the carved out books or not, but maybe you could find a book that looks kind of boring and leave the first few pages so that he really thinks its book, but then he turns some pages and poof! tickets! I don't know if that makes sense or not..?
