Wow - absolutely gorgeous.  What a lot of work!  That's so cute though - I would've loved a dress like that when I was a girl  Grin

How cute is that!  Great job, and a testament to your patience.

I wonder....can you make yo-yo's out of terry-cloth?  How fantastic would that version be (unlined) as a swim cover-up for the summer?  Can you get terry thin enough for that?  Anyone?

I was just staring at the clover yo-yo maker last Sunday trying to justify buying it with my Joann's coupon.  I'm guessing by this awesome dress that it works pretty well.  Wink

I don't know if terrycloth would work, but it would be adorable!

And I cannot recommend the Clover yo-yo maker highly enough.  It's such a little thing that you'll be irritated at how expensive it is for two pieces of plastic, but it makes it so easy to make perfect yo-yos every single time that I got over my irritation.  You won't regret having it in your tool box.

Beautiful. I love it!

I didn't know there was a yo yo maker.  I'll have to go take a look!

How cute can it get? I always marvel at people who have the patience for making things out of yo-yos. You did a lovely job.

You know I adore everything you make and this is no exception.  Grin

I must get on with playing with my yoyo maker. I have visions of making a yoyo evening bag, though where I will get that much scrap silk I don't know.... Wink Or perhaps we should be organising a yoyo-swap...? Cool

Its a great dress and thoroughly deserves to be in the spotlight hons! Grin Grin Grin

I would totally be down for a yo yo swap!

I still have about 100 pink ones in my stash closet!
