Wow - what a terrific dress, I want one just like it :) I stunned that you got such a complex/intersting result from such a simple pattern.

Karen, have a look at the link I added. I followed the lines of the pattern and just added the triangles to make the wings. No pattern needed :)

This is amazing. I loved the bias hem band - it is great that it was cut too short - I think the bias bindings make for a fantastic detail.

Wow! Stunning on you. What a difference a good fit on top can make for an unusual shaped bottom. Great work.

Wow, that totally changes the look of that pattern! I really like the bias bindings, and the elastic gathering looks just right with the slight crinkliness of the fabric.
