Fabulous! Just change your biography skills rating to Advanced though!

Hey can you tell me how to put the lace on the dress and the pattern pattern package says you need 7 year, do I really need that much. I'm a small girl. thanks

Your dress is fabulous and is helping me a great deal get through mine. I am using the same pattern and changing it from the hips down. Would like to get some info on how you applied the lace.

awww, what a nice review, beautiful gown, etc etc etc!!! You really looked lovely on your wedding day and your work is exquisite. I enjoyed reading about it. I also used "The Bible" (Susan Khalje's book) to sew my wedding ensemble and I went through all the same joy of shopping for the lace & silks and mine was a labor of love, too. Congratulations!

Lovely. The dress came out great. I'm a big fan of hand-picked zippers in formal wear. Your fabric hunt was worth it. (Cute dog also.)

Such a beautiful dress. You did a stunning job--I'm proud of you. You accomplished a wonderful thing. (Don't think I've ever read such a great "review". It was more like a mini-novel, felt like I lived it all along with you.) And I liked your ceremonial "smooch" pic--you both looked sew nice. :o)

How wonderful that you could make such a lovely dress for your wedding - it looks absolutely perfect - wishing you many, many happy years

OMG. Your dress is so beautiful it made me cry. It reminded me of making my own 21 yrs. ago. (Yours is much more fabulous, though.) I think you need to bump yourself up to Advanced/Couture because if that dress isn't true couture, I don't know what is! You are VERY talented!

That was an amazing review. I'm about to make my first lace wedding dress for my niece and I feel I learned a lot from your review. You did a great job. Your lace and fabrics are exquisite and you looked fantastic.
