This is quite possibly the most gorgeous thing I've seen in ages.  Your loved ones are silly and should be beaten with some sense for mocking this.  The creation of something like this is (in my admittedly young opinion) akin to giving birth to a child.  It is just as worthy of labor.

That is a magnificent piece of art! Congratulations on five months of labor. Juts think, since it's rainbow, you could wear it with any color of blouse. That makes it very practical in my eyes! Your model looks like she's ready to go do some dancing. I suggest you put on the skirt and some lively music and do the same.
Did you know that the impressionist artists were scoffed at too? Look at how much people enjoy their art today! When you put your heart into something, it's never a waste of time!

It IS beautiful, and you have the patience of a saint!  One thing I've learned about being an individual is that there are lots of people who aren't, and they are terrified of anything outside their squares.  Their ridicule doesn't come from a true and accurate judgment of your work, it comes from their inability to appreciate the wild and wonderful.  Which is exactly what this skirt is!  Bravo, and keep your chin waaaaay up!

I am in awe of your work.  I think your skirt is absolutely beautiful.  Infact is has inspired me to try one soon.  I would be proud to wear it myself.  You hold your head high, IT IS A MASTERPIECE.

this is gorgeous!
who cares what people say.
that's a real accomplishment and it's absolutely beautiful.
i'm sitting here looking at it wondering if i could pull off wearing something like that or if i should make it for friends of mine. it's a beautiful idea and i love it.
i for one, will be at least trying my hand at something like it. maybe even the skirt for my cousins prom dress. it's absolutely beautiful. i hope you don't mind me mimicking your design!
