 Wink Hi guys ... Edit : just to let everyone know its 300 circles  Grin

   I'm so excited to post this dress , Iv been inspired  for a while by those signs that are lil glittery bits that twinkle in the wind ... any way I wasn't sure what shape to make circles or squares or even what color I wanted to use ,  then I saw the Movie S Darko and the awesome dress by Elsi Katz and I knew circles would be prefect ...I used some great Yale blue Raw silk I got for Christmas and mixed in some blue shiny satin of a slightly different shade to give it more of a scaly iridescent look when light hits it ..... I was going to tell you guys  exactly how many circles are in the dress but I thought it might be fun to let you guys guess first  Wink..the circles are each 3 inches and Id say I put at least 60 hours into making this  Shocked I really don't have any where to wear a dress like this .. but I said who cares Its My birthday so I'm wearing it bowling ! lol ... Please tell me what you guys think Of this one ... its my biggest project so far

worn with petti coat

without the petti coat and with jeans

the S Darko Dress

Thanks for looking
have a great night/day

WOW Shocked Shocked Shocked Jayne, this is incredible. I was thinking that you haven't posted in a while but now I know why. It's absolutely beautiful and I love the idea of wearing it to go bowling on your birthday. I am so gonna hit this rocks. Happy birthday! Grin
And I guess there are about 400-450 circles Huh in it.
