I'm sorry to hear that people ridiculed this dress. It is awesome, and I only wish I had the patience to do one myself.

Hi!  I'm fairly new to craftster and finally figured out how to post things [don't laugh! ok, laugh].  When I first saw your skirt, it took my breath away!  It is a real piece of art.  I understand how any criticism can break your heart when you work so hard on something, but trust me, it's beautiful.  Also, remember that most people don't understand art or fashion.  I feel sorry for them, honestly.  Don't let them shake your confidence or stifle your creativity.

I added your beautiful skirt to my favorites. It is so gorgeous and what a labor of love! I don't know how anyone could criticize such a work of art.

Have you seen yourself on the threadbanger.com blog? Congratulations, once again to you, the creator of "the mother of all handmade skirts!" You've made waves in the crafting community. And I'm still going to copy you. More than once!

Far out, your skirt's amazing. Don't let the bastards get you down! Argh, I love your skirt so much. I can't believe people actually made fun of it. One question, I don't know if it's been asked and answered already, but how heavy is the skirt?

this is the most beautiful thing Smiley
and you know what, you have to be stronger than those people because they really dont understand what hard work , concentration, long hours, it takes to go into a sewing project. That happened with me and my dress I just made, I spent so much time on it and I think it looks pretty darn professional Wink yet people didnt see the full picture, and only  I really know how much went into it, and you should be proud of your accomplishment Smiley
keeep up the good work!

You could turn off the sun, but i'm still gonna shine Smiley

That. Is. AMAZING!!! Like, jaw-droppingly amazing!!  Shocked
The colors are fabulous and I can't even imagine all the hours of love and work that went into making it, you created a true masterpiece.

I'm just getting into American Tribal Style Bellydance, and the main skirts are made with similar construction -just not so many or so tiny of squares- to get beautiful loft and ruffle without bulk, and I have to say I think this skirt would be the centerpiece in a dance routine. GORGEOUS!!

I'd love to try making one myself, but I don't know that I have the patience (unfortunately). About how many yards do you think it took? Or how many yards is it around the bottom hem?

I really love that skirt. Please don't worry about the things  people told you. If they can't se the beauty of your work that's there problem. Have you consider making more of those skirts for sale. i will love to buy one.
