Wow!  It turned out beautiful, the colour is really nice on you.  How awesome that no one could possibly be wearing the same dress  Wink

AMAZING!! Good for you!! It really turned out fantastic - the color and fit look great on you. I want to twirl around in that skirt.

So much cooler than the boring black dress I wore to prom!

Aw, thanks for the compliments on it everyone! Cheesy

BTW, which pattern did you use for the skirt?  Even if it isn't written well, I'd at least like to wing it enough to get a skirt as cool as yours!
The pattern can be found here but you have to be a site member to view it (apparently they changed the rules since I got the pattern Wink). Hopefully you'll be able to figure it out better than I could!

What yarn did you use?
I used the Naturally Caron Spa yarn. The color was "Ocean Spray". Not the yarn the pattern called for, but I thought it was pretty. Smiley

That is some awesome patience. You have good looking ahead skills to think far enough advance to make sure you had time to get it done. when I saw your post I just had to look. I would never be able to do it.

Wow! That's impressive! I absolutely love the skirt. The way the lace pattern looks over the fabric is gorgeous.
