Beautiful! It's a great colour choice for you too! I think that this dress is universally flattering, it looks great on everyone!

I totally agree. I have yet to see a person who's made one of these and didn't look good in it!

very beautiful dress i like how you can change it so that its not always the same look.  i hate when i have to dress up and i only have 1 or 2 things to wear and everyone has already seen them.. this is great for that it can look different almost every time!!! GREAT WORK!!

Wow!!! Great job!!!  I REALLY like the way you modified the waistband part- I struggle with covering up what I refer to affectionately as my "back boobs", and you've just fixed my problem for me!  The last time I made one of these I was pregnant, and I've been afraid to try ever since... but I think you just motivated me to give it another try.  Thanks, and you're going to look fabulous at the wedding!!

It didn't take overly long. I'd say maybe 2 to 3 hours. When I bought my fabric I had them cut one piece a little longer than the the length I needed for the strap and I only had to cut the straps the width ed. I also had them cut what I needed for the skirt seperately from the straps, so i jsut had to fold and cut my skirt. I'm cutting my circle skirts as long as I can get them out of my fabric now because i can always shorten them, but It's almost impossible to make them longer. I made the waist band and tube top parts out of the leftovers from the straps. That made it all go quicker. Once I got everything pinned correctly. ( I had to do it twice the first time cause I twisted it) it was just a matter of sewing the seams.
