Oh, I *love* it!! Your dress turned out GORGEOUS-and I love the belt, it's perfect-as are the buttons and the lovely eyelet fabric. I've been resisting this pattern for months, and now look what you've done!! :D I have to get this one!!! LOL :D thanks for giving me the excuse! tee-hee :P

Fabulous! They didn't have such little waists either, just heavy duty corsets! But the style gives that illusion anyway. Really like your fabric choices and I love the blue under the brown. Much better than tan would have been. Your review is terrific too.

Breathtaking... Blue and brown is one of my favorite color combinations, and I esp love a contrast underlining with an eyelet. Thanks for the informative review.

I'm a little late looking, but that dress is JUST GORGEOUS! Well done indeed. I agree completely with your light-blue lining. My button stash was my great-aunt's... what a cool thing to inherit!

Just a me-too comment on how beautiful your dress turned out! I am planning to make this dress for my graduation (PhD!) in white eyelet. If you get a chance, could you take a photo of the inside of the bodice and the facing so I can get a better idea? Thanks so much! Katie
