Thank you all for the such wonderful and sweet comments. I promise I will soon be back posting my sewing. You all sure know how to make a girl feel wanted ;-) I do have the blog set so there aren't anonymous postings, these negative comments were a result of the "Open ID" portion of the posting. Basically, they can post with an ID but it's not a Google ID.
I love this dress and laid it out to cut out but put it away shortly so that I can work on a mini wardrobe. I will definitely be making this dress though.
