This is absolutely beautiful! I love your fabric, first of all: It's perfect! And secondly, you put so much time and effort into this, and it really shows. GIVE YOURSELF A PROMOTION! You're past "advanced beginner" stage, I'd say. :o)

Thanks for a great review, & yours is a very elegant rendition of this gown! An apparition at the top of the stairs on Halloween sounds perfect! I certainly endorse Annette's suggestion that you upgrade your skills -- these two costumes are certainly above the usual stage quality! Beautiful results!

Another Wow! I love the jacquard fabric...the gown is beautiful. A wondeful job! BTW...are you using your new 850 to sew these beautiful gowns? :)

This is just gorgeous. Thanks for the heads up on the grosgrain placement and the boning channels. I never thought of making this pattern, now I am looking for a reason...maybe my dd will want to be Queen Elizabeth for Halloween!

I agree that you need a promotion also! Your work is stunning! Your reviews are always so interesting.

Thanks so much for your comments! I guess I still consider myself Advanced Beginner because I have so much to learn in the way of finishing and other basics. I can construct garments OK, but some of the basics have been the last things I've learned and am still learning. I think once I have zippers mastered, I'll feel I qualify as more of an intermediate!

Wow - beautiful - you have a lot more patience than I do. Great job.

Oh, 2B - These gowns were made before I had my WONDERFUL 850! I'll write a review on that after I use some of the fancy stitches. ;)

How could I missed this gown! Wow! I can picture Michelle Pfeiffer/Glenn Close from Dangerous Liaisons wearing this gown! Your work is commendable!

Gorgeous, but way past my skills.

Sara, I'm so glad that you like my stuff! I have lots of fun! I still consider myself an advanced beginner as I have lots of gaps. Once I can get a few more skills under my belt such as welt pockets, invisible zippers, alterations and better hand stitching, then I'll feel worthy of a promotion!!!

Kellie, you didn't say what kind of boning you used for this project. If it was Ridgeline, I read in Kenneth King's Threads article from 1993 that you can burn the ends of it with a lighter, similar to what you can do with certain types of rope and cord. I tried that on my daughter's corsets and found if I used a Bar-B-Q lighter, and just passed it lightly over the ends of the boning to heat it up, then pressed it down with my fingertips it slightly melts and dulls the edges really well. You have to be careful not to over melt it, or hold it for too long or it burns the fingers a bit. Much easier than buying those bulky bone ends.

First off, beautiful gown! :) The fabric choice is lovely and, yes, quite dramatic! Second, I made this dress a few months ago and noticed problems with the sleeves and the neck band. The top of the bodice piece was far too tight, the neckline was too baggy, and the sleeves looked about 6 sizes too big, despite being the "right" size. Did you have any problems with this? Btw, The lace looks lovely. :)
