Elaray, your daughter looks absolutely gorgeous in this dress! You can tell she is thrilled to be wearing it. You have done a superb job with this. I can't agree more with you about making a muslin and hand basting. Fantastic work!

Great job, Elaray. It looks wonderful on her. I know what you mean about labor-intensive; I told my DD that she was going to have to get married in that prom dress - and it was RED.

What a beautiful dress! Your sewing techniques are impressive. I'm with you, I've learned to love (well, okay, like) hand basting after watching Susan Khalje. Thanks for sharing all the details and the picture of your lovely daughter.

All your tender loving care paid off - that is one beautiful dress! Thanks for the great reveiw and letting us in on all the extras you did to make it turn out so well! Did you make the wrap and the purse too - they match beautifully.
