The material that you used for the dress is fantastic. And the lotus brings it to any entirely different level! Very cool stuff.

How did you do that lotus? Wonderful work, looks so pretty on and the wrap makes it just that much better. Very, very nice, and it looks great on you too! You're so cute and look so lovely in it, don't say you won't ever wear anything so fancy, you could Totally pull that off!

Everything about that dress is so beautiful: the colors, the fabrics, the lotus and the beading. I can't imagine that your sister won't absolutely LOVE it! And if she doesn't, I'm sure you'd have many takers for it!

thank you everyone!  I think she will like it, because the lotus has a special significance for us, sorta. 

It started at Burning Man in 2002, when I painted this lotus on our friend:



My sister loved it so much that she asked me to draw one for her, for her tattoo for her birthday.



She really likes the sort of lotus that I draw, and so i make lots of thing with lotus motif. 

So I'm pretty sure she'll like it- I just hope its not too 'old lady-ey', with all the sparkling.

I can see why you were nervous about cutting into the fabric, it's amazing! But you did such a great job, I love the lotus.
