Can we have a larger pic please? I would really love to have a look.

I bet the dress is lovely, but the photo is unfortunately beyond teeny-tiny.

Hi Thanks for looking at my review so quickly. Yes I'm working on a bigger picture! My computing skills are not on par with my dressmaking and my daughter promised to help but she's skyping her husband - they married but now are waiting for relevant visas to allow her into the States.
6/26/11 5:18 PM
I can direct you to my flickr page (if it works!) where I have more pictures including making the dress. http://www.flickr.com/photos/61163376@N00/sets/72157626927518029/

what a labour of love. I cant believe the amount of work you've put in to making and modifying that dress. I'm ambitious, but something like that is totally beyond me! congratulations, it is amazing.
6/26/11 5:32 PM
Yay Daughter sorted out my picture links issues.
6/26/11 5:35 PM
I'm sitting here all teary but with a big smile on my face. Lovely dress! Lovely pictures! Lovely wedding! And, what a lovely mum!
6/26/11 5:37 PM
What an amazing dress! Your daughter made a beautiful bride.
6/26/11 6:00 PM
This dress is really beautiful. The ivory color of the fabric really suits your daughter, and all of your tremendous work paid off!
6/26/11 6:16 PM
This dress – and the bride – are so glamourous! Thank you for sharing!
6/26/11 6:20 PM

Beautiful dress and bride!
6/26/11 9:12 PM
Beautiful dress, beautiful bride, and beautiful accomplishment. What a wonderful thing to have done, and what a beautiful memory to have!
6/26/11 9:45 PM
The wedding gown is stunning! Your daughter looked radiant in her well fitting gown and your photo journal is truly special.
6/26/11 9:48 PM
What a great photo journey and one gorgeous dress!!! Thank you for all the details! Best wishes to the newlyweds.
6/26/11 10:08 PM
What an absolutely gorgeous gown! I loved your account of modifying it and putting it together, and the result is truly stunning. As an aside, the groom's kilt ain't too shabby, either. They didn't cheat on the yardage, and the kilt has great swing.
6/26/11 10:48 PM
Wow-OMG-Superb and all words in between, what an awesome job you did creating this wedding gown ...the fit is fantastic! You should be so overwhelmingly proud of yourself! Thanks for sharing all those wonderful pictures!!
6/26/11 10:56 PM
This is amazing dress, especially since you made up so much as you went along. Multi-colored, multi-textured floofage is such a fun touch. Your daughter's sense of style (40's bathing suit) compliments her physical features beautifully. What a wonderful set of wedding experiences and memories you and your daughter share!
6/26/11 11:26 PM
Beautiful job on your daughter's wedding gown!She looks fantastic in it and I'm sure was very proud to wear what you created just for her on her special day. Great work! What a lucky lady to have a great mom like you :)
6/26/11 11:41 PM
Perfect dress! And it's a perfect pairing with the groom's kilt and Prince Charlie!
6/27/11 0:49 AM
You need to stop referring to yourself as an amateur dressmaker! Fantastic dress!
6/27/11 1:45 AM
oh. my. gosh. LOVE your pictorial story! And the dress is a smashingly beautiful success! I love every single detail about it - a special day made even more so by the love and detail you put into everything. Thank you for taking us on such a delightful journey!

Absolutely beautiful!! Your hard work is clearly apparent here and the bride is radiant. I'm also so happy to hear there's another newlywed US-UK couple with a handmade wedding gown!! :)
6/27/11 9:27 AM
Absolutely lovely! Beautiful work. Nice job. Thanks for the review.
6/27/11 11:13 AM
Stunning!!! Your daughter looks radiant. Great job and great review!

Just gorgeous! I appreciate how you cataloged photos marking the various stages of making this beautiful dress. Very, very nice work!
6/27/11 4:29 PM
What an amazing dress!
6/27/11 5:35 PM
Floofage :D This is a very pretty dress! Nice job modifying the bodice!
6/27/11 10:00 PM
JUST AMAZING. I'm so impressed and 'G' looks so fabulous and happy! Such a great job :)

This dress is gorgeous!

What an excellent display of workmanship. "Professional" you are. "For hire" maybe not. But definately "professional!" Just gorgeous!

What a gorgeous bride your daughter was in her dress. You did a magnificent job. Really appreciated all the great pictures. Such beautiful work.

Just gorgeous! Great job and I love the way you modified the bodice. That bow...ugh.
8/8/11 7:35 PM
hey I willing be using this pattern too,to make a lace gown. My question is about the top, I wont be using the bow and straps do you think I will need a new bodice top bc it seems like I will new too i'll just buy another dress with a nice bodice top and sew it on to this one.
8/19/11 8:14 PM
Barb90 - you can make the dress without the bow but because the way the bodice is constructed there will be seams over the bust. See my early pics to see what I mean. Straps can be left out if you make the foundation garment. You could try a bodice from another pattern but you'll have to adjust it to fit to the skirt.
8/27/11 12:55 PM
That's what I was thinking. I will just another bodice top. Thanks
8/27/11 1:08 PM
Ooo..One more thing does it tell you how to sew on the netting because I want some puff. I'm trying to achieve this look.....Ann Barge Windsor http://wedding.ustcan.com/wedding-dresses/designer/anne-barge/dress/sweetheart/mermaid/floor-length/windsor/ and I might make the train a bit longer or is it all ready really long. I ordered the pattern but had to return it bc it was the wrong size so I didn't get to read it. Thanks for your help.
9/6/11 5:15 PM
I pretty much changed my dress idea I'm going for this one http://www.neimanmarcus.com/store/catalog/prod.jhtml?itemId=prod132010006&parentId=cat27490731&masterId=&index=1&cmCat=cat000000cat000001cat40550765cat000131cat10040734cat27490731&isEditorial=false . I just wish there was a way to hind the seam line on the bust and I'm going to use a bodice top
9/6/11 5:16 PM
Wow! Well done, and thanks for all the detail; it's really interesting to read.
