Wow. You're a firecracker! I would have crawled into a ball at the break-in. Great work and great save after save. And a highly entertaining review!

Very pretty dress, the formal look is just lovely. look. I like your choice of fabric, and it looks really nice on you. How clever you are to lengthen it that way. I'm glad your assisant is ok, and sorry he ripped the crinoline! I am sorry you had a break in too.

The power of positive thinking is beautiful, isn't it? Written or thought of more negatively, you may have had a multitude of problems and a complete wadder at the the end. Instead you have a fantastically funny story, a gorgeous dress, and (I'm guessing) lots of people thinking "I wish I'd thought of that!" Great job!

I am really impressed - by your resilience and your creativity. And the final result looks really very high couture! Definitely impressive dressing! So sorry about the break-in but you are real lesson in how to survive. Thanks

well, after all that it certainly turned out beautifully! Congratulations on foiling the angry fabric gods! and what a fun read!

Definitely design elements. Lovely; I have to say I like your final version better than the original. And what determination, despite all of your set-backs. Congratulations both on your dress (which in the original view really does look like the original pattern) and your resiliency.

I genuinely prefer Plan B (or is it C or D?) to Plan A, even though that was pretty too. Really love the dress, and you look like a million bucks in it! Congrats on swift thinking and a great save...

Wow, wow, oh wow, ReBecca! What an enjoyable review, and seeing the photo at the end was the best icing on a cake that I've had in a long while. You took that dress up a notch, IMHO! I hope you have the opportunity to wear it again--and soon!

Breathtaking! I want that dress. You did a fantastic job making lemonade from lemons. I'll bet you were the Belle of the Ball.

Geez you're dress looks great. I love how you worked that dress to suit you, rather than the other way around. Well done.
