Beautiful! You know, I would love to see your photo sessions ... I have visions of you running back and forth into the house for a change of clothes, shoes piled up ready for the next outfit, and your DH waiting patiently at the end of the driveway. LOL! Your photos are always fantastic!

Stunning!!! The sash is the perfect finishing touch to pull in the waist and give the dress shape. Maybe we should organise to have a PR photo shoot at Erica's house. LOL!

Your ribbon addition really adds to this dress (and I'm someone who usually isn't a ribbon fan). You did a great job on this dress. And you must have a great wardrobe!

Erica your dress turned out extremely sophisticated. I love it. I'm envisioning a sheer ribbon as well, the name of the fabric I'd use is on the tip of my tongue....I love how well it fits you! This would be a perfect dress for a summer wedding.

Erica, I thought I remembered that someone had reviewed this dress and went searching for the review--there was your beautiful dress. Your review was so helpful, the dress looks difficult to me, but you have convinced me that I could do it. Fabulous as always!! Thank you!

Beautiful job on this dress, and thanks so much for the comment on the length. I would have been very unhappy if I'd have sewn this with the length as is. Your photos are high quality and very helpful. Thanks!

You absolutely do great work! I have this pattern also and have hesitated thinking it would make me look like I was wearing maternity--you added the ribbon for definition!!! Great idea. Wonderful construction, again!
