I trimmed the middle and the lining hem with a really cute blue and white polka dot ribbon. I will take photos of Ellen all dolled up on Thursday night. Tomorrow I will tell you about all the silly things I did along the way...

The dress is beautiful. It can only enhance Ellen's natural loveliness. I hope we get to see photos of her wearing it. Pretty please?

Oh, it's beautiful! I can't wait to see pictures of her wearing it! When is the ceremony? She has to give a speech? Is she nervous? I'll be sending good thoughts your way!

Just beautiful! When she's done with it, it deserves to be hung in a frame to showcase it!!
