You have one lucky sister to get such a lovely dress. This dress has such beautiful style lines and you did a great job on it.

That is sooo cute! I really want to make a dress like that, but am too afraid of messing up the white halter tie bit! Great work, madam! Cheesy -x-

If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than 'please',I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.

Oh wow, I LOVE that sweetheart neckline!  You did a beautiful job on this.  Your sister is very lucky- I'd wear this in a heartbeat!  The red polka dot fabric really makes the dress.

I love this, you did a very nice job.  And the hairclips are so cute!  Wish I had a sister like you to make me cute dresses.

Thank you!!  Grin  I found some polka dot in turquoise and pink which I reeeeally want and I am thinking of making the pattern in, though I have seen a lovely blue dotty one online too which is lovely.  It is a really nice pattern and easy to put together.  The bodice is lined with the same fabric as I didn't see any reason to use a different colour and the fabric was cheap.  The white is actually a charity shop cotton skirt that I bought for fancy dress and have used for sooo many projects and its still going!
