Thanks for the review. I was just talking about this dress on my blog last week. I found the perfect blue print charmeuse for the top. Your version is fantastic!

Wow. That is a fantastic dress!!! I love the way it turned out and it is so flattering with your nice slim figure. The fabric you used is beautiful. Now all I need is for someone I know to get married so I would have an excuse to make one for myself!!!

Burda had the winning pattern, but you provided stellar fabrics that elevated the design into haute couture status! Your dress is gorgeous!
