Very lovely. I'm amazed you could turn out such a lovely garment on the antique sewing machine. I guess it puts the rest of us to shame.

Your dress looks wonderful on you! I am very impressed that you accomplished it on a hand operated machine.

It looks great. I agree about the hand picked zipper. That is the "couture" way. But to make it concealed, I would love to see your tutorial onit. Thanks for the information.

I can't believe you took the time to make this on a hand cranked antique machine. What a tremendous amount of work. it's very beautiful.

Wow. The dress looks beautiful on you. You definitely need to promote yourself. You're not a beginner by any means.

Beautiful! You look smashing in that dress. I think La Fred patterns has some instructions for inserting an invisible zipper with a regular foot, and that you can find them on the net. Those old machines make beautiful stitches, don't they?

Even though your sewing machine is old, it should be possible to fit it with a zipper foot. Most of the kits for invisible zipper feet have several "shanks" to fit a variety of machines. Your dress is gorgeous.

Fabulous dress! Love the length and great with your boots. Looks as tho it cost a fortune. But only you and us know otherwise. Love it.

Love your dress. Fits beautifully and looks great on you. I'm sure you had a good time at your dance party because you definitely had a great dress for it.

Gorgeous!! Because you're young & firm, the look is "WOW" just as-is!! I could also "see" this little black dress with different jewelry types, little "jackets", belts... WOW!! Enjoy your pretty dress!

ooh this is gorgeous! I was eying this up in the magazine. I can't tell from your review though - did you make the additional underskirt, too, or did you find the dress was poufy enough on its own?

Gorgeous dress! I had my eye on this one too. Way to make that machine work for you!!

You have a beautiful dress and to think that you sewed it on an antique sewing machine. Great job.

Beautiful dress. I much prefer yours to the BWOF one. The hand sewn zipper sounds like quite an achievement, too!
