Beautiful dress. I love your modifications.

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!

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!

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!

I agree with everyone above Erica - you are like a model for Vogue, and I just love every single outfit you make! Would you consider giving classes in how to be so stylish??!!

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.

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!

Are the pleat edges finished? I have the pattern and can't tell if top edges of pleats are finished, doesn't appear that way. My email Pennymortgages@aol.com Thank you

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!

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!
