What a lovely solution to your pressing problem. The crystals make the dress. I admire your patience in applying all those crystals.

What a beautiful job you did on those crystals. Well worth the effort. I've made this dress and wish I would have done something like the fisheye dart because it wrinkles above my rear.

Kathy, what an awesome dress! I love how it turned out-- love the marriage of the tie-dye velvet look with the crystals. Very 21st century fashion! I have this pattern and need to get to work on it. Thanks for the great 2 reviews to read up beforehand!

AMAZING! Really love the save you did here! Did you use a design pattern for applying the crystals? You look great in this dress!! Carla

What a great "error becomes an opportunity" dress! good for you for finishing. It was on the form for only 18 mos? I have multiple layers of UFO's on my form!! LOL!!

Gosh -- that is gorgeous embellishment. It was well-worth the 16 months it took to complete it.

Don't you love how mistakes become design opportunities? Very pretty--I hope you get a chance to wear it someplace elegant!

Beautiful dress. The crystals really make it, and obviously meant to be. Great save, even if it took you over a year. :-)

You look ready for a nice evening out! Wonderful save on the dress! Great idea! I always admire your impeccable fit and creating something that looks so much better than the original pattern design. Enjoy your stunning one of a kind dress!

Stunning and gorgeous on you! At first, I thought what a pretty necklace you're wearing with the dress. I am in awe of your talent and creativity. Enjoyed reading your review. Your persistence in finishing...paid off. Congratulations on your 50th review. :)

Be glad pressed that seam. Those crystals absolutely make this dress. I first thought you had some never seen before necklace that went to the hem. This is perfect!
