Don't worry about it. You can't get enough of Robert Downey Jr. Besides I wasn't on last night anyway.

Love your super secret project.

Wow! I love the dress! I haven't yet taken that leap to making clothes for myself but this helps push me closer to that edge. It is super flattering. Great job!

Alli is such a very talented photographer!! I love the railroad pictures, and she did a great job with your photo shoot!!!

I love the dress too!!! It looks whimsical, but not childish. Great fabric!

D~ your dress is beautiful! It looks great with just the plain hem. I'm not so much into ruffles either. However, I would like to see it without the jacket....

I love the colors in that dress. And you are right, it doesn't need a frilly border. There is too much going on with the flowered print and different fabrics for that.

I first start sewing clothes because I could never get pants that weren't two inches too short and sleeves that ended two inches above my wrist. I've spent many a winter with frozen wrists because my coat sleeves were too short. Thankfully, they are long enough now. It is nice that you found a pattern that worked so well for you.

Super Secret Project for ...YOU!!! I'm so happy for you. It looks great! You look great! And you're so very lucky to have your very own personal photographer!

Go For the matching bag - if you have time.

I've gone in my sewing room to iron things since I got home that that is it, I got the crud with cough and DH had knee surgery on Friday, so he's been...challenging this weekend and the DR office just told him TODAY that this minor surgery was going to keep him out of work all week. Oh well, the dog's happy.

I love the idea of taking a "kid" custom and making it work for a teen or grown-up.

Yeah it was considering it's the only time we've ever ran into her. Let's just say we saw Ariel right after her and she more than made up for the interaction we had. She saw what happened and you could just see the shock in her face as we walked away from Mulan. When I filed my complaint I was told under no circumstances should a character make a guest feel horrible!! I understand Mulan's character but she just went over and beyond with what she did.

WOW!! The dress turned out amazing!!! Love all the pictures! Looks like you guys were having a great time!!

I'm BAAAAACK! I ended up having 3 surgeries in 6 days. Yep, that's right. I am in TONS of pain right now, but being able to get back to the DIS boards has helped. Thanks to everyone for their well wishes. They were greatly appreciated.

D - I LOVE your dress! It is AWESOME! You look fabulous in it. I don't think I would have liked the ruffles so I am glad you don't have them. I am so glad you were able to this FOR YOU! You really deserve it.

Is Ali thinking about becoming a professional photographer? She is very talented and I think she'd be a GREAT photographer.

When you announce your Super Secret Project, will you give us a link to it? I usually have a hard time finding new threads - computer challenged, you know!

D, I want you to know how much I have loved your TR. When I read your TR, I feel like we are old friends and you've invited me into your kitchen and we are chatting over coffee. You are such a warm and caring person and even though we are on computers several states away from each other, I feel so welcome. You have many gifts and the way you make people feel so special is one of the best ones!

I am leaving on my Disney cruise in 24 days. I have so enjoyed reading your TR that I am thinking I should start a PTR too. I know mine won't be near as good as yours, D, but I can at least try!
