so lovely! sounds like a great pattern. I think it's great without the beading, which might have otherwise made it too "costumey". great job!

Very elegant dress, I love it and a great review too - do you also have a picture of your summer dress "muslin" version?

Beautiful dress! You did a terrific job fitting it. You and your DH make a handsome couple.

Stunning! And thanks for the You Tube tutorial link. My, among other things, I see you've now made a gorgeous formal, a coat, a slipcover for a camelback sofa... "Advanced Beginner" doesn't quite describe you anymore, IMHO. :)

your husband is a lucky man! you look lovely in every way. Thanks for the details of how you constructed it. Also of how it emphasized certain features. I'm 5'2" and mommy bodied, and I'd like something glamourous to wear this summer, too.
