Oh, my gosh! I'm completely overwhelmed by how wonderful all of your comments are. Thank you for your kind feedback, everyone!  Grin

And by the way, embercostumer -- That's actually really fun to hear that it reminds you of that, because it was one of my inspirations! ^^ I've always loved that dress, and it was in the back of my mind as I was making this one. As for the material, I'm not entirely sure whether it's really chiffon - it wasn't labeled, unfortunately! Most of the sewing was by hand, anyway, so it wasn't too bad.

Thank you again, everyone who has commented!

I would love to do a personal swap!  I can sew, knit, and crochet.  I have a 9 year old who loves to do swaps as well so we can do a mommy/daughter swap package. Smiley

Amazing! Amazing! And to sew most of it by hand! You're crazy but it was totally worth it.  Cheesy You'll have to keep that dress forever and ever.
