Wow, that is lovely. Congratulations on your dress.. Great fabric, also.

You get a gold medal for patience and sheer refusal to settle! I'm inspired by the care you took with this project--next time I decide to take fitting shortcuts with a pattern I really like, I'll remember this review. Thanks for the helpful details, kudos on maintaining your composure despite the tailor debacle, and congratulations on a lovely, lovely garment.

I love the skirt and think the vertical pleats flatter you.

I so admire your persverance. It sure paid off as the 2nd muslin is looking good. I am looking forward to seeing the finished dress.

*chuckle* Actually, I pitched it. Tacky polyester is beyond me!

The silk will be gorgeous, but inquiring minds REALLY want to know... what did you do with version 3???

I like that you are making this and I can follow along. I have this pattern on my wish list but was unsure of how it would fit on my non-svelte body. Thanks!

Looks like you've got yourself a great fit! I love the blue floral version, and that hand-dyed silk is gorgeous! Good luck with the silk version.

I'm very excited to see how this is going to turn out! But just so that you know, none of the pictures except the pockets one is showing up when you click on the link. Good luck finishing your muslin!
