it is better to destroy, than to create what is meaningless.

Wowza! This dress is amazing! I love all the different bits of lace and details.
One bit of constructive criticism.. That plastic circular thingy on the back doesn't fit with the dress. It sticks out and that's all I can see when I look at the back. It takes away from the overall genius of your creation. Maybe it's because it's white on the black fabric it really stands out. Or maybe it's the size or because it's plastic. I don't know it just doesn't fit. Great job overall!!! Love it!

Beautifully balanced in a totally asymmetrical way! This kind of thing isn't easy to do, and harder to do well, so I'm really in awe of what you've done. And while I get what AkronIndyCraft means about the white plastic spool on the back, I don't really agree that it's out of place there. It kind of serves the same purpose as the bold black-and-white t-shirt lettering - it keeps your eye moving and keeps it from being too aesthetically "comfortable". But as it does physically stick out, I can imagine it'll prove to be annoying when you're wearing it!

Any chance of a modelling photo? I bet this looks amazing on you!

This is freakin' phenomenal!  Love Love love!  Gibbous style is so hard to get right, and you totally nailed it!

Love it <3!!
I wanted to do a dress like this, too but I never knew how to start, so it's great to read your blog entry and how you done it. It's a great idea to use a bra to start of!
