This is simply stunning! You did such a gorgeous job of it! Sigh... that fabric is so beautiful! I adore the bustle like gathering in the back and the front is equally fantastic. Really you've outdone yourself! Breathtaking! xoxo, Sunni

Perfect for the symphony, this is outstanding. The fabric looks very complex in colors and the jacquard looks like a match for the style. You did an excellent job sewing this dress.

You've created a fabulous dress and the capelet looks lovely with it. I enjoyed seeing all of the different photos, including those of the garment's interior. You're very talented and do beautiful work. Love your reviews!

Another gorgeous dress! The pattern looks nice enough, but your dress inspires me to possibly make it. May I ask if you are long waistedbin the body? I'm not, and worry how such details will play out on my frame? Particularly I like the interesting fabric that you chose.

Gorgeous dress and you look stunning! Love how you accessorized everything.

Another gorgeous creation that looks terrific on you. I like the yellow shoes & hat with the dress & the red lining - what a fun, interesting outfit. The criss-crossed draped front reminds me of one of the Spring 2011 Donna Karan patterns - the one with the lady wearing a red dress.
