beautiful but time consuming Review by KIM

I have made this, twice! Made it first in silver and it was gorgeous, and donated it for a Church auction. The second one was in gold and it was a gift. It is a very time consuming project, at least for me, but well worth the effot. My favorite one though was in silver.

I love it!! Review by G.

I love this pattern! Though I haven't started it yet....well, it's from Diane Fitzgerald so that says enough. I'm in a Middle Eastern dance group (belly dance) so I do know how authentic this looks. It's beautiful. I will be the envy of others with this on! Thanks for the wonderful design. More, more, more.
