I really like this one. It's beautiful. I'm going to guess about 275 circles.

Wow! It looks like a texture similar to fish scales ... love it! Very pretty. And 60 hours making the circles, omg! I would've gone mental, I'm crazy impatient working on my sewing projects.
As for the number of them, I'm guessing 180-200 circles (please update soon with the number!).
I also want to know is how heavy it is!

Ah, I'm feeling inspired to make a dress like this myself!

That is gorgeous! And I have to say that I like your shorter version. Great color choice too.

I will guess 450.

Looks AMAZING! I'm sure I'm not the only one who wants to see pictures of you bowling in it.

LOVE this...the colour is so lovely on you!  How did you fabricate the skirt--are the circles sewn onto a base?  Also, did you hem the circles each by hand or machine?

Amazing! The thumbnail doesn't do this dress justice. I can't imagine sewing all those circles. I'm going crazy sewing leaves for a doll, and I don't have to turn and press and hem those. Truly a labor of love. It looks great on you too.

WOW! I'm super impressed.. the color is sooo rich, the textures are incredible and the way everything comes together couldn't BE any more perfect!  The inspiration dress is nice.. but c'mon, other than as a bridal gown or on the red carpet, where would you wear it? I honestly like your version SO much better.  Definitely wear it bowling!  But if you're invited to any weddings, or go to any clubs, or have ANY event that's even slightly more dressy than a backyard barbecue..... wear that dress!

btw.. that color against your skin tone with your hair color?? I doubt you could find a more stunning color!
