Simply stunning! Yours is much prettier than Vogue's pattern photo. The pockets are much nicer without the buttons.

As I prepared to comment on your lovely dress, the word that came to mind was the same word used by others--STUNNING! The fabric, fit and style are impeccable!!

This is so stunning, incredible job. I agree with the other comments, I thought it was a model's photo.

I am speechless - I thought the photo of you in the dress was from the pattern envelope - what a truly beautiful dress and your work on it makes it a true classic.

Beautiful!! I enjoy hand stitching too, and on a dress from Patou, it really gives that couture touch that was intended :)

When I saw your picture I thought for sure this was a joke. No way someone actually sewed that at home and calls themselves a beginner. Even the photography is gorgeous. We are all green with envy over your fabulousness!

Oh I love the witty lining! And the fact that you made it in YELLOW!

Whoa--this is fabulous. Please move your beginning listing at the the very least to an intermediate, although this dress looks like it was made by a very advanced sewer. Beautiful work: thanks for sharing all the details and the beautiful pictures. Whereever you're going to wear this dress, you'll be the belle of the event.

This project is amazing!!! this is what it's all about couture at home, at it's best. You should be very proud of your dress. I am going to use this review of your dress as inspiration for a long time.

Took my breath away when I saw it. Absolutely STUNNING!!!

Absolutely BREATHTAKING! I can't believe this is your first lining and zipper because you look like a cream of the crop seamstress. The lining you chose is breathtaking as well! I'd give anything to be able to sew like that!

piggyannie said...
you have done such a beautiful job as a beginner! I don't think you should label yourself as a beginner. Congratulations! :)

Absolutely inspiring! You represent us beginning sewers well by demonstrating so much patience and attention to detail with this dress.
10/24/07 10:47 AM
A beautiful gown. IMO the project is more lovely than the pattern photo. Great selection. Great job
10/24/07 1:47 PM
jjc said...
excellent job! your choice of fabric is perfect. the dress has body yet, does not look stiff and the fit is just perfect. congrats on a job well done.

Wonderful job! I'm curious what kind of machine you have? The stitches look so nice and tight (not to mention your handwork!)
10/26/07 2:48 PM
fryman said...
Congratulations on this great win!! The lining fabric choice is exciting and, I think, very designer level. How old is this pattern? Where and when did you wear this formal dress? Did you have assistance with the actual sewing? Very very impressive for a biginner. Good for you

Hi, what a gorgeous dress, very well done, I adore such dresses. Is it maybe possible to get a copy of this pattern. I looked on the net for this pattern, but alas. I hope, I didn't offend you with my question?

Wow, how beautiful, and drapes wonderfully. Inspires me to work harder, and spend more hours on the machine!!!! Thanks for sharing.
