Crafting is in my blood! Just not in my geneology.

Sorry I forgot to mention the name!  Tongue I'm pretty sure the park is called "Falls Park."

As for the fabric, I hate to say it, but I'm not too sure what it's called. The fabric in real-life is actually much darker than that, but it is some type of silk. It has gold thread in it that reflects in the light, which is what really made me pick it for this dress. Sorry I can't help more than that! I did it get at Mary Jo's in Gastonia, NC.

Hejin, you noticed too! Ya, it doesn't fit her very well as for the contest I had to make it to fit a size 8. My model was about a 6, which made her a great candidate to wear it. Not many others I knew would come close to that size and her height made the dress fall nicely. But that's why it doesn't fit her entirely.  Wink
Psh!  Im an eight!  You should have asked me! Wink
you did a great job!

Silk. OK, that's enough for me. I already love silks. Cheesy

Yeah, my only beef would be with the fit of the bodice. But since you cleard that up i can safely say this dress is epic win!

The ruffles are so gorgeous!

That's beautiful. I really like the fabric and the background really sets it off. You must have a load of patience to do all those ruffles.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.
