I gaped and ogled at your Immortal self. Yes to the flattering.

What an incredibly sexy dress! If I'm ever in need of an evening gown I might have to try this one.

Just beautiful. I agree that the colors are amazing. And the shoes are perfect.

Fantastic! I just love the Janet Arnold series of books, too! Thanks for sharing your luminous gown.

I've always wanted an excuse to wear a tiara! This is my all time favorite costume period. Love your version.

You look like you've just stepped out of a Jane Austen novel--beautiful.

Thanks for all the compliments everyone! Annika - the fabric I used was a silk habotai. I wanted something really drapey and flowing, I was going for a more exotic empire look a la "Immortal Beloved". The overdress is my redraft of one in Janet Arnold's Patterns of Fashion.

Very lovely - especially the choice of color.

What fabric did you use for the saffron colored dress? What pattern did you use for the overdress? The color combo is delicious!
