Beautiful fabric and color, as well as the back drape. You did a great job on this dress.

Gorgeous, both colour and fabric. Did you get a photo of you wearing it? You must have looked very glamorous.

I had the pattern for a while, stashed away for a special occasion. It'll be hard to find. I love the front drape/neckline. Um, a photo of me in it would be too vain! I wore the dress almost 2 weeks ago and finished the hem last week! The creases and grease marks down the skirt are really from the party...

On the contrary, seeing you in the dress shows other sewers how the dress looks on a real human body. It's really beautiful nice job!

Lovely dress!! I like the combination of the two fabrics. Nice story about how the dress came together (in the end). I wish you a lot of happy sewing hours.

It's lovely, good job. I've had similar problems putting a zip into a bias cut dress. Perhaps you could add a link to a TIP on this ?
