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.

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.

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.

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!!!

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. :)

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!

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!

A lovely dress to suit a lovely bride! The pearl embroidery is exquisite.

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

How fabulous - the design, the pearl embellishments, etc. You did a wonderful job on this - I congratulate you.

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!!

Gorgeous! It is beautiful and you look lovely on your wedding day.

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.

Beautiful dress. I love the beadwork...was that a pattern or did you do the design yourself.

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 :)
