I don't know when I've read so many compliments about a member's work as I have with your creation. There is not too much to add other than - 'You Go Girl!'

Congratulations! The dress looks fabulous. How clever to make the design changes that you did. I too would have faced it the way you did. Good luck on your next project.

I love this dress! I wonder, how difficult was it to make the curved sleeve pieces without stretching? Did Ms. Dish use iron stabilizer???

Congratulations on a beautifully rendered garment. *question: am I the only one that can't open this picture? I've tried a zillion times and I just cant' open the thumbnail.

Wow, your dress is SPOT ON! Wear it with pride. Just curious, do you know how much the Trina Turk original would have cost you?

That dress is the hotness! I love that!

Well Ms Dish, how you transformed that elemental McCalls pattern into this intricate and stunning dress has to be the Eighth Wonder of the World! To say you have "vision" is to say that Picasso dabbled in paints. Nothing short of breathtaking! -Lily
Shikisew said... (3/3/08 1:26 PM) Reply
Love it! You not only interpreted it but made it even better! And I truly believe what is custom made should be BETTER than ready to wear!

Strikingly Fabulous.

Dear Hard-Core Crafter: :o) I, as well, LOVE your dress! The black-and-white combination is so striking and the design incorporated into the sleeves gives as nice flow. Just beautiful. Now get to crocheting that cap!

This is a knock out dress. Much better than the original. The sleeves are to die for. Very inspiring.

You did a terrific job! All you need is a big necklace and you will look just like the model!

Wow, i want that dress! So prettty!!!!!!!!!
Stitchcakes said... (3/3/08 9:34 AM) Reply
I know everybody says this, but yours really is better! The RTW is too 'designer-y' with that sleeve volume at the shoulder. Yours is much more wearable. The sleeve length is better, too.

Love the witty label on photo to go with your great dress.
CShelley said... (3/3/08 8:51 AM) Reply
You nailed it! You should be very pleased with yourself. Enjoy!

I actually like yours better. The neckline accents the sleeves and shoulders better. Fabulous job on the sleeves.

This is so fabulous, I agree with Karla, it's pretty hard to tell which one is the original!

I'm sure glad you labeled the orginal and your version; I wouldn't have been able to figure out which was which. Fabulous!
