All your painstaking work on the inside is reflected on the outside of this stunning dress. Aren't you so pleased to see how beautifully the dress hangs and how perfectly it fits? Love the rich color. You did a fabulous job!

Kelly, that is so pretty! Your sewing is beautiful too. This is one of those garments that is as pretty inside as out. Your writing style is easy to read. You have been the treat with my morning coffee. Cindy

THERE she is, MISS AMERICA! :o) You look BEAUTIFUL! Look at your TINY little waist in this dress! The RUCHING is to die for (did I mention I LOVE ruching). Even the BACK is gorgeous. And the COLOR shows off your tan to perfection. Each step of construction is masterful, as well. Bravo!

Wow this is just gorgeous! And I just saw this pattern on a vintage site today while looking for a design for a prom dress. The ruching is stunning and I adore the color. Thank you for such an informative review!

What a beautiful gown. I love the color. Thank goodness for cruises, for without them most of us would never have occasion to dress up, I'd wager. I wish now that I had made something as lovely as your gown for my cruise in October (although I wouldn't have had room for it in my luggage!).
