Thank you so much to all who have stopped by to comment! I can't take too much credit - It is truly a brilliant pattern, and the style and colour choices were from the girl herself (who, like Cinderella, would look brilliant even in rags!) I just plodded along VERY carefully through the pattern, and then spent so many hours handsewing that embroidered lace, found on ebay, that I have no fingertips left (lol). I have changed my skill to intermediate (but I still feel a bit of a fraud with that) - I put in my first invisible zip with this one...and that was not a great experience. I think, if you have a really good pattern, that really suits your model - and then you take a lot of time to make sure that the fit is good - and you google the sewing techniques until your brain fries, before you try them - this is the result!

Exquisite! Definition: Characterized by intricate and beautiful design or execution. Yep, that sums up this dress......exquisite.

Totally amazing. The dress is really stunning and fits beautifully. Your work is far above Advanced Beginner! I loved seeing the young lady modeling it. You should be very proud of your masterpiece.

Wow. You inspire me. I taught HS for many years. Never saw anything so beautiful at any of the dances. Very lucky young lady.

So gorgeous so far! Can't wait to see the finished dress. What does the young lady need it for? Prom? Prom's are over around here, in fact, school is out for summer as of last week.

Soooooooooooooo very pretty! You know, I bought this pattern, knowing full well I would NEVER have a need for the corset OR the slip, but it's just so pretty, I couldn't resist. :o) I can't wait to see your finished project. I LOVE it so far!

It doesn't look like underware at all so far. Wow I love how it's coming about and can't wait to see it finished.

Very pretty! I also viewed this pattern thinking wouldn't it be a beautiful dress! Why not, so many of the other patterns look the same. It is beautiful with the red.

It's not like underwear at all. I was surprised when I looked at the pattern, which I also have. It's beautiful, what a great combo with the red.

this is looking great so far, love the contrast of the red lace over white satin! Can't wait to see the finished result.
