Beautiful dress - outstanding craftsmanship.

Love this dress! I'll bet the construction is superb after following Susan Khalje's Couture Sewing class! I also made a dress from this same Oscar de la Renta fabric and agree that it is fabulous! I hope you've created an occasion to wear it and show it off!

It looks stunning. I ogled that fabric many times on the internet, it is to die for, without question and worth the cost. Great to see it put to such good use. I have that pattern as a result of the Craftsy course, but before seeing some of the PR versions had dismissed it as frumpy.

Wow. I have bought this class as well and have to date just been looking at it on the laptop.... it's really encouraging to see your result. Also love that fabric. Beautiful workmanship!

I am still wondering if I'll ever have the patience to undertake a project like this. Seeing your beautiful results might make me a believer.

jlg you sewed this just beautifully, all your creations are just perfect. You made me laugh when you said " I have absolutely nowhere to wear it" I don't need half of what I make but I'm not about to stop. I look at it as art work, each piece is hand crafted. Striving for perfection is very satisfying. You need to change your sewing skill to Advance :)

Great workmanship and the fabric is just beautiful.

Wow, it looks gorgeous and I LOVE your fabric!! I think your decision to make the front midriff one piece was a great change. I think the center seam would have detracted from your amazing fabric

This is adorable!! I love the full skirt. The fabric is awesome and a totally great look on you!

You did a fantastic job! The fabric you chose is a staff favorite here at Mood. We just think it's so lovely, and you look fantastic in it.

That fabric is just stunning!! I put in on my wish list awhile back. Your dress is really beautiful.

Wow, that is some serious fitting in the bodice, I love it!!! I would wear it watching tv, if I had too!

Perfection!

Oh it is breathtaking! You did a lovely job. I have this class too and, like you, am wondering where I would wear this dress. But just the class is so worth doing for the learning experience. I like that you chose the circle skirt, I have been considering the same. It is so flattering and pretty on you. You are an inspiration to me to get back to the class.

If you don't have a place to wear that dress, I'll find one for you - it is a knockout!

Gorgeous dress!! The fit is wonderful. I'm watching the class through and thinking about what fabric I'd like to use. Yours is so lovely! Great job.

That's gorgeous!!!! I love the fabric!!! I'm taking the class, but am still gathering materials and watching the rest of the lessons. I haven't even picked out my fashion fabric yet. I hope my finished product turns out as well as yours!!! Great job!!!

What a wonderful dress. I salute you for conquering silk charmeuse and for taking the time to achieve perfection according to Susan Khalje. You will wear this. Count on it.
