    This is great! I love a midi length. It's one of the advantages of being tall… the ability to carry off this length! Great job per usual!

    I love love love do you make this design or custom orders? How long have you been sewing?

    • July 24, 2013 / 5:52 pm

      Thank you! I'm not making custom orders on this one due to the fact it's a bit time consuming and the turn around time is pretty extensive. But thank you so much.
