Beautiful job on your dress, and satin can be a reall buggar to work with- you did well! Do you have a good sewing book to refer to as you go along? It will tell you things like removing basting stitches, and all sorts of other stuff you'll find handy.

I can't believe that this is the first thing you've ever sewn! With the facings, pleats, etc., it's more than "basic". Great job!

VERY nice dress, and it looks GREAT on you! As far as adding more pictures, if you go in to edit your review, you will see a clickable link above the body of the review that says something along the links of "Click here to add a link," or something like that. Click on that and will bring up a pop-up screen into which you can paste the url of your photos. Great job!

I am very impressed with your first sewing attempt. You look lovely in the dress and I would have no problem wearing it to work. Congratulations.

Upload your pics to a picasa or flickr file: they're free, you just need a gmail (in the case of picasa) or yahoo (for flickr) email address. Then just cut and paste the URL (web address) in your review -- it's part of the template you fill in and you should be able to access when you edit your review. Hope that helps.

I'm impressed that you tried a dress for a first project. Great job. Just zig zag those fraying seams and go.

Nice job for your first! Brave to use slippery fabric too! Yr 2nd attempt will be a breeze.

Girl--you keep sewing!!! What a wonderful job!!! The dress looks great on you. You can find tons of information on the Knowledge Base on this site and I still use my trusty old Vogue Sewing Book a lot when I need information on a new technique. I am totally impressed with your first effort. Congratulations.

Your dress looks great! You have a flattering fit. You did just the right thing to adjust the length and number of pleats to fit. In order to add photos you have to edit the review. Above the part where there is the template of questions (the Review box) you can click on "insert a clickable link in your review." This will open a window where you can add the URL.

Thanks guys! You made my day. As far as more photos, I'm not entirely sure how to add more than one photo to the page. Any ideas Peter?

Hey, that's pretty. Now we want more photos!
