I'm doing some creative writing. As a non-native, coming up with a title that sounds good or interesting in English can be a bit of a challenge because it requires more than just English language skills. Is "Rag to riches: a dress maker's story" OK as a title? And is it appropriately stylised (with a colon and all)?
Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
'Dressmaker' is a single word, as in your title — not two as in your text.
Yes, "rags" with an "s". I realised the mistake after I clicked Submit. I didn't know how to edit my own post. And "dressmaker" too. Sorry.
