Gerat job, Gabrielle. Very nice fit, lovely color, and the contrasting side adds some nice design interest.

Beautiful! First, I can't believe that is poly. Second, I can't wait until I am brave enough to size up, do a full bust adjustment, etc. etc. Third, thanks for the reminder that making a toile each and every time is worth the 'extra' effort in the long run. You are an inspiration!

Beautiful dress and it looks absolutely lovely on you. I love your choice in fabric too, and the rose placement is terrific to cover up the snipped V

What a striking dress! Beautiful work, and I love how the shiny side adds to the flounce. Nice touch. Thanks for mentioning how you enlarged the pattern!

I like your attitude, not to be confined to a size category or the instructions. What a terrific dress!

You are very accomplished -- Everything you tried worked beautifully. I have some satin backed crepe and you have given me an idea of how it might be used to its best advantage. Great job.

Great look and using the satin backed crepe is a great idea.

I'm SO impressed with how you graded this up! It looks great - very flattering. This is really inspiring for someone else who tends to be larger than the largest size!

The perfect fit is very evident. Nice work! Great color, and I love the way you took advantage of both sides of the fabric.
