Thanks Perryjay :-)

The hesitancy comes from the fact that people look at a picture, and it is sometimes a little different in real life, and because they are not dressmakers they have little understanding that it is this way. Copying a design doesn't always result in a perfect replica... rather a very similar interpretation.

Anyway...its almost finished now, so I can't be worried about it now. The girl is coming over in a couple of days to do a final fitting.

Howdy friend... the dress is pretty much done, except for the beading and hem. The girl is coming at 2 p.m. tomorrow - I hope she likes it.

I hope you're well, K :-)

Good afternoon Mike, John, and Magenta. Pretty warm day here. About 60F, supposed to be a tad bit warmer the next few days. I'm hoping the warm temps stay, I'm tired of the snow. LOL
