I've got that pattern, too, but haven't dared touching it yet. Yours suits you very well, you look like a Grande Dame. You should wear it much more often than just on very special occasions. Or maybe make one more in a light wool oder light linen and wear this on just regular days. I like it very much on you!

Its an attractive dress, well done for perservering with all the alterations. The information about distressing the silk is useful too, its true dupioni can be a bit crisp and shiny when you get it. The colour you've achieved with this suits your colouring, and it has a classy look, right for your very special occasion.

What an interesting pattern to tackle...it does look a bit complicated but very fetching on you. It looks like your adjustments worked perfect as I can see it fits you very nicely. Thanks for the link to silk distressing...very helpful link. Thanks for your review! Cute Hat too!
