What a beautiful dress and all the love you put into paid off. It is perfect on her, what a beautiful daughter and how proud can you be! I love the lace and how feminine the whole dress is. You did a fantastic job, great review.

WOW!!!! I think you just saved my hours and hours of experimentation, because this is very close to the gown my DD wants for her wedding next May....thank you for all the detailed information about where you found the lovely fabric.

How beautiful! I spent most of last year working out my dd's drss. I thought I would use this pattern too but her heart was set on a $10,000 designer dress. I ended up with a Neue Mode pattern for the skirt but had to create the top which was tiny vertical pleats.It looked effortless,but Oh my!I spent ages too looking for fabric. I found pure silk satin at Banksville Fabric and the lace trim in La. I think it is so inspiring that Mothers everywhere still make their girls' wedding gowns I've done 6.
