May I be the first to compliment you on this beautiful dress. I am quite in awe of your ability to sew a muslin, pin out alterations, and proceed to create a perfectly fitted dress. Bravo!

I've seen this dress in person and it's a stunner! The fabric is interesting in very sublte light play. It fit you to a T and looked delightful in motion also. Impeccable sewing and attention to detail.

MNBarb said...
Wow, beautiful work, fabric, style! Your attention to detail is amazing. The idea of making an entire muslin garment overwhelms me but, now that I see this final result, I see how essential it can be to a perfectly fitting garment.

What a stunning dress! I absolutely love all the detailed couture touches you sewed into it. They certainly make a difference in the beautiful fit and drape of the dress. Thanks so much for all the fitting photos. It helps me see what is really necessary when making a garment -- steps that I often don't think about but which can make all the difference. Lovely, lovely, lovely!

I have been waiting for your dress because I lurk around daily on your blog. This dress is beautiful. It brings back memories of the types of hand sewing I would do for 4-H competition as a high school kid. I had forgotten all about the little "hangy" snap technique. I still do use the thread technique to attach skirt lining. (When I am not finishing the outfit 20 minutes before I need it) The fit is superb, you deserve a purple ribbon!!!

Not sure what I can add that hasn't already been said--stunning, work-of-art, exquisite, perfect fit...did I leave anything out?? Beautiful dress!!!

Absolutely GORGEOUS dress! I don't think the fit could be any better. I love all the extra construction details you have included in your review .... so perfect, as always!

Simply love the dress: as always impeccably made and the fit is perfect. The end result is gorgeous. Hope you find many occassions for wearing it.

I wish I could have seen this in person! What a perfect dress for the occasion, well-fitted and exquisitely made. You look beautiful in it, and as always I'm really grateful for the time you take to document your process. I know that it adds a lot of time to a project, but it's so helpful and so much appreciated.

Gorgeous dress--elegant as can be. Thanks for all the good instructions. I have no where to wear this little beauty, but it might be fun to make just for the learning experience!

Way to go with this dress. I saw this on the Vogue website and thought it would take a brave person (or very skilled) to take on this project. So bravo to you for taking it on and doing such a good job with it.

Fictionfan said...
Thanks for your excellent photos. I've cited them in my review of this pattern. Too bad I did not look at them before I made my dress! As everyone else has said, you did a beautiful job and have a truly gorgeous dress!
