I am glad you didn't actually have to resort to "petty theft!" That's so funny. Anyway, I love the dress' style and the fabric you chose. Of course, as always, you did a fantastic job sewing this garment.

That was quite an adventure you had with the zipper. But, it all turned out fine because the dress is lovely on you.

Wonderful dress! I like your version better than the original. I laughed when you mentioned the on line translations. Very, very strange results! I am making the Bottega Veneta dress from Knipmode and I don't speak Dutch. Sigrid did answer a few questions, but I found that figuring it out myself is good for my sewing skills and very freeing. Maybe it wasn't exactly the way they did it, but it's your dress to make the way you want. It looks like you managed just fine on your own.

Trials and tribulations paid off and you have a great looking dress. Love the look, I can see why you did also.
