 Cheesy What strikes me most is that the girl in the ad looks like she needs to gain a few pounds, but you look trim and HEALTHY!. God give that little girl in the ad a sandwich or something! Keep sewing - its great that you can replicate the styles you like and not be a slave to the high prices and limited selection in the stores.

The dress is stunning!
I cannot believe just how perfectly you managed to match the material.
I hope you enjoyed yourself at the dance Smiley
