I noticed you have opened an imgbox account - is it possible you uploaded all the photos into a gallery in one go? I noticed this happened to me - one photo is "full size" while the others seemed small. I couldn't figure it out how to get round it so in the end deleted them and uploaded each photo individually and clicked full size for each one when copying to post.

Very nice collection of dresses, they suit you. I like the poodle one best, then the top one. Very unusual and unique.

Poodle gets my vote.
Real talent.
With a skill, like yours you should be put to making money and employeeing people to do the graft and you do the designing.
Well done.
Show me some dresses .
Trouble is I see dresses that SHMBO I think would like then spend ages finding them .
Do you make them to order or do you have to take measurements .
