    Nice, really nice but he should have used intricate lace for the bodice instead of plain cotton…

      I agree, it is a little plain. The ruffled collar is not enough, the dress needs more. Love Polikem though.

    she is a pretty lady. i liked the gown but the top can be tweaked the top material looked like it was of poor quality. reminded me of china poplin. nevertheless one can tell he is creative and thats a good thing in fashion.

    The be quite honest, the dress is just okay. The top portion of the dress looks cheap and unfinished and something about the ruffles looks off to me, I just can’t put my finger on it.
