That dress is beautiful! I love the fabric and the ruffles!  Grin

And... Oh my gosh, you are wearing the necklace you purchased from me! I seriously squealed when I noticed, hehe.  Cheesy

I also gave you a shout out with a link on my blog! I love this necklace  Grin

Okay, I'm officially jealous.   Cheesy

I LOVE this dress!  It's absolutely perfect.  Funny enough....you're almost my size, too.  My boobage is a bit smaller though. 

You did a great job.  I finally got a dress form recently and have been working on a few things....this will have to be added to my list.  With any luck, I'll get it finished before I'm 90.

Thanks for sharing and inspiring us all!
