I'm sorry, Nikarphar. I looked, but I believe this fabric is sold out. It was available back in April.

I've never SEEN such a GORGEOUS, EXPERTLY tailored dress in my life! If they put your pictures on the pattern, they'd sell a million on them. :o) Just exquisite!

This is a professionally sewn garment that, when not in use, should hang in a place of honor in your home. Just perfect!

This is an amazing dress, beautiful tailored! The belt technique is quite clever and one I've never thought of.

OMG, WOW,WOW, this is one of the most gorgeous dresses that I've laid my eyes on! You should be so proud of yourself. Excellent job!

Beautiful! I have this dress cut out myself and I must say that your craftsmanship and fabric choice are perfect! Your fabric is crisp like the pattern photo and shows off the lines well.

What I like especially: The silver threads in the fabric, the execution of the collar and sleeves, the belt, the lining--wonderful job!

Fabulous! Someday I hope to sew this well. Thanks for all of the information which really helps a beginner like me.

Wow there's no word to describe how gorgeous looking your dress is. And this review is so on time for me. The dress is next on my sewing project. I've been waiting for a review for ages. Thanks for it; I'll be extra careful with the test muslin I intend to make. This seems to be a mandatory step. Concerning the belt I've just thought about the possibility of altering a purchased belt. Thanks again. I can't wait to start mine.

Super dress. Looks so expensive and well-made. Wish it wouldn't so time-consuming, though...

You did a phenomenal job! I bought this pattern a few weeks back and am looking forward to making it. Fingers crossed that it turns out as lovely as yours.

WOW! Fabulous job! I have this pattern, still hunting for some fabric. Thanks for all the great tips.

MichelleE said...
Thanks so much. I can't wait to see others versions of this dress. When I can do bound buttonholes with ease and make a Chanel style jacket, I will consider myself advanced! Right now, I am a happy intermediate.
