Very impressive! It must take a lot of patience to work with that amount of fabric.

Just beautiful, you definately got the look you were going for. Lots of work and the black lace is very stunning.

Absolutely beautiful! You did a wonderful job! I've considered a few of this company's historical patterns (this one included I believe) so thanks for the note on the length. I'll triple-check the measurements if I do make one.

Wonderful dress! Coffee/cream and black is such an elegant colour combination. It's hard to imagine that these dresses would have been sewn by hand originally!
