Fantastic gown! Wow!!! I remember this pattern from a while back and when I went back to buy it it was OOP! Yours is so lovely and elegant. I do particularly love it with the flaming red feather boa ;D

Amazing dress, you look gorgeous. You should be rating yourself higher than an advanced beginner, I'd say......

drop dead gorgeous. I snaffled up this pattern as soon as it was available ... I love 1930s clothes and it was great that it wasn't only in the small sizes. I'm still waiting for an occasion to make it.

Great Dress! I too cranked this one out in record time for a class reunion formal a couple of years ago. I think there are still some safety pins in the hem!. Yours looks great! I feel your pain on the flounces. ugh. I am glad you finished it in time!

This is already OOP? !! Great job on your dress; can't believe you got it done so quickly. Perhaps I will have occasion to make some of the patterns I have on hand "just because".

Oh this is gorgeous. I'm impressed you were able to finish everything so quickly, but you are right, the end result is just stunning.

You did a beautiful job with this dress. I have completely fallen in love with this pattern and have just won it on ebay. Unfortunately there is no possible event in my life I could wear it to. i am really hoping that something one day crops up like it did for you :)
