Such a glamorous dress. You look just like a forties movie star in it.

This dress is so beautiful! You've got me looking for a nightgown to convert, great job.

I love the 30s style. You did a great job. I also like the unusual colour (which suits you too!)

The bias cut does everything it's supposed to! Amazing fabric choice. Looks like a beautiful classic.

Ooh! This is truly elegant. Would make a wonderful wedding dress too. But your difficulties with sizing and getting it on probably come from using polyester (?), which isn't as stretchy, and adding a lining, which takes out a lot of stretch as well. Those 30s designs really require something very drapey, were meant for a silk or rayon. Now that you've got the pattern adjusted, try it in a plain silk charmeuse :-).

It's gorgeous! Really beautiful and so are you. Looks like a fun wedding too. Would love to see close-ups of the bodice & back bodice. Great job!

Beautiful formal gown! Where was the wedding in the photos? I am intrigued by the columns and sculptures--looks like a nice setting for a wedding.
