looking for that part of me that got tossed aside when I grew up
Love the color/pattern and style of the dress. You look very pretty in that dress, it flatters you. I think you have gone off the deep end with the back fat. Your back looks good, as do you, with the entire dress. I wish I could have a talent like sewing or knitting, I get so jealous.Have fun at the wedding and I hope the seminar is productive. Either way, you will look fantastic.
That is a great pattern though and the front fits very nicely. Great job!
