Wow! Good job and you put so much work into it! It reminds me of Disney's Cinderella where the little birds tie the bow on the back of her dress. Perfect!

I would love to see the whole thing but everytime I click on the project photo this is what I get "Google Error Not Found The requested URL /Dumpsterboy/SCionfEsPHI/AAAAAAAABz0/2jMBsMyYs4Y/Picture%20041_square.jpg was not found on this server.

Excellent review! I also am getting the same error message. I would love to see your gown. I love that you used blue for the sash.

You did a super job! I've looked at this style for bridal business. Got lots of great advice now! Take off on RTW was super!!

Stunning and you will be a stunning bride. What patience to struggle through for 8 solid months. But you will shine on your big day. Love the bodice and the fabric color for the bow compliments and makes a statement. Well done.

First of all...congratulations on getting your dress done WAY in advance! What wonderful changes you made to the origianl pattern. You PERFECTED the look of the gown, not only with the raised sash in the front but using a contrast color. I admire your perseverance and attention to detail in making the dress to fit YOU. GREAT, GREAT job! Hope your wedding is equally spectacular!

What a beautiful dress! I just love the addition of color (always thought that was very cool) with the bow. You did a fabulous job on your dress and the photo diary of the process was great, too. Please, please post pics after the wedding! :)
