I hope "I am pleased with the result" is an understatement! That dress is some gorgeous! Love the zippers, hongkong binding, fit...I could keep on gushing! I know that you likely know that the pattern shown in the pattern photo is the wrong one, but I don't know how to tell you how to correct it. With a knockout dress like that, who needs the proper pattern photo- you show the right one later anyhow! Kudos!

Really cute - and exposed zippers are so "in" right now. You did a terrific job on the inspiration side of things, and I love what you did with the seam finishing inside the dress.
