A charming review..I enjoyed your description of how you returned to sewing! Your dress is lovely and one can not have a better "mentor/model" than Goodbye Valentino!

What a beautiful dress. And a very interesting story. You certainly don't need to buy clothes with skills like yours. Love the fabric and the piping is very nice indeed. I am using the same pattern in search of a TNT pattern for dresses.

Wow! This is quite a story! Thanks for sharing your anniversary celebration. Isn't this the best pattern? SO timeless. Your dress is adorable and cute, cute fabric. Who knew that would be the tie that binds!! Love it.

I LOVE how your year came full circle! The original skirt is nice but your dress is great! I love the piped detail, it really elevates the construction of a simple sheath. Looks wonderful and elegant on you. I always enjoy your reviews so I'm grateful to the skirt that started it all :D

The dress looks absolutely fabulous on you! The piping on the neck/arm edges is a very nice touch. I had to Google custom skirt party - I'd never heard of that before. Welcome back to sewing! I have been trying to squeeze in some creative sewing time with a stupid crazy work life, too. Your fabulous result is an inspiration!
