Beautiful beautiful! I thought the wrinkles in the bodice were a design element. Love the fabric and color too! Congratulations on your first well-written review, Huldra :)

You did a beautiful job. I have made this dress for my niece's debutante dress and I agree totally with the fact that it seems too big, I did a lot of taking in and also found that I should have taken it in more directly under the bust, unfortunately I only had one fitting after I sewed it. She was happy but i am pickier.

How beautiful is this? What a truly wonderful job you did and like Sew Very Tall I thought the wrinkles were part of the design - it certainly does not detract but adds a certain softness. Many years of happiness!!

An absolutely beautiful dress. I thought the wrinkles were a design element too, I wouldn't have known any different!

The dress is absolutely stunning on you. I don't think you could have found a color that suits your own coloring better than this one. Congratulations on your wedding, your lovely dress, and your first review on PR!

The color is stunning and you look so beautiful. If you can't tell if the wrinkles are a design element or not, then they definitely are!

You look gorgeous! A beautiful, stunning gown. I love the colour (it's very flattering on you) and your fabric looks every bit as expensive at it was. :)

Your dress looks stunning, the color is wonderful on you. I used the pattern as a base for my friend's wedding dress and I confirm that the ease is a bit much. I had to make adjustments following the muslin and even then, with the weight of the dress (see my review for a picture of the dress) it kept sliding down... :-( Nevertheless, you did a great job, congratulations!!!

Absolutely stunning dress. Everything about it looks perfect: you look beautiful in the color and style. The beadwork is so-o-o couture. Thanks for sharing: look forward to seeing many more reviews by you.

Lovely. And really nice touch with the beading. As w/ SewVeryTall, I though the bodice "wrinkles" were actually "gathering" that was part of the design.

Very striking color on your--dress is lovely, the beadwork a really great touch. I, too, thought the gathers on the side a design element--is now.
