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.

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 :)

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

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!

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!!!
