Great job on this gown! Good for you to take on making a dress at the last minute (sounds familiar!) for an event instead of running out to the mall or (gasp!) wear something already in your wardobe. It turned out really well and I'll be nobody noticed that you faked the hem :)

Simply smashing. Isn't it amazing what you can achieve when a deadline looms?!

Love the dress! Looks terrific on you. I can't believe you made it the day before. Oh, and I, too, have used Steam-A-Seam on a silk formal gown at the very last minute - it's Miracle Stuff.

This was the most entertaining review I've read in ages :-) Well done on sewing such a lovely dress in a hurry.

I like the satin cord detail at the waist, and overall I like your dress better than the pattern envelope. It's amazing that you made it so quickly.

Formal in a day? I'm impressed and would have not suspected your shortcuts. Very clever and very pretty!

This looks pretty damn fine for a speedily sewn dress! I LOL at your eyesight comment! At my last similar event we were all squinting at the menu as no one had brought reading glasses.

Amazing dress! Fit is perfect, color stunning - so becoming. Steam-a-seam? Mais, oui!
