Dress really suits you, Cidell. It was worth the work over the four months. Hope you will post pix of you wearing it to an event on your blog. One can only guess whom you may meet! :-)

Cidell, this dress is really special! A perfect plan to use the selvage as the hemline b/c not only is it authentic to the Ghana source of the fabric, but visually, the tiny white edge reinforces the white piping of the bodice cummerband inset. Beautifully fitted and the color is smashing with your skin tone. You look gorgeous, Lily

Great idea using the hand picked zipper. What no beading too? LOL I love the head wrap and the dress is darling, as are you in it.
3/21/08 12:56 PM
MissCelie said...
Sherril: HA! It was only handpicked because of the Susan Khalje class. And I'm still not in love with the beading. As lovely as yours was. I'm waiting for the right project for that.

Oh, I just LOVE this dress!! (Doesn't hurt that it's my favorite color, but regardless...) I love what you did with the border print, and the color is perfect on you...although I'm still waiting for the color that ISN'T. :)

Lovely dress, the fabric is beautiful, I like the way you have used the border at the waist as well.

Wonderful dress, wonderful fabric! You look fantastic in it!

That is an amazing color for you and the dress is adorable. If you would actually get some wear out of the head wrap, I would keep it - it looks really good on you and works well with the dress.

Lovely dress!! The fabric is beautiful!

Well, aren't you just too cute for words in your 60s sundress! The piped waistline is not only a nice embellishment, it is very authentic for the period. Great job on placing the print elements.

Nancy K said...
It's a great dress and the piping is the perfect accent. The dress perfect on you. Lovely.

Beautiful dress! Looks like you found the perfect pattern to show off that fabric. Looks like it really fits well too.

OMG your dress is stunning! I have 2 wax prints in my closet that my stepson brought back from Kenya but I could never pull anything like this together. You used all the features of the fabric to it's best advantage. Please keep the headwrap. It absolutely completes the outfit and is beautiful and timeless and feminine.

Oh, yeah - it's a keeper

Cidell, you work wonders with your fabric choices. Love the added touches of silk underlining and piping. And I especially love the color.

I L-O-V-E this dress on you!! It's so flattering. The fabric, the colour, the style, the fit and how you used the border print with piping. I'd swear you paid thousands for this dress!
3/21/08 6:39 PM
sew2little said...
Great use of the border for the waist inset, Cidell! I thought for a moment that this was fabric you bought in LA and I was going to congratulate you for being first to post--but it's almost better that you used the technique you used in the workshop. I so enjoyed meeting you in LA! Marci

This is more then beautiful. The fit of your dress is way better then in Burda's catalogue. Oh la la ! I am impressed. This color is beautiful on you !

Oh Cidell, you are so beautiful in this dress. The attention to detail is amazing, the use of the fabric-so well thought out. Handpicked zipper! Woo hoo! I was there when you took your first stitches....awwwwwww.

Christina Sonja said...
You are gonna make some heads turn in that dress (I mean in a good way, of course!).

Oh Cidell! You are adorable and electrifying at the same time! Captivating dress with super symmetry!

Super cute dress! Your head wrap is a beautiful bonus! Great job.

What a beautiful rendition you've made with the design of your fabric, the piping, and the headwrap, as well (which I love, by the way)! Another winner, but was there ever any doubt? :o)

Love the dress!! And I love the color on your, too!!

Wow, this really looks fantastic. I love the headwrap and the fabulous color. The bra cup idea is inspiring too.

Ann Smith said...
This is fantastic on you. Terrific job with the piecing and placement of the print. Hope many occasions come up to wear it.

Cidell, if you wear your gorgeous dress to a summer wedding, you will outshine the bride.

That dress is great! You really did a fantastic job. Now I want that back issue. I have some orange silk that is begging to be made into that pattern!

Stitchcakes said...
WANT!!! If you ever have occasion to wear a headwrap, you absolutely should wear this one with this dress. Too awesome!

You look so great in your beautiful ACID GREEN dress--my best friend is nuts over this color and wears it all the time just as successfully as you do! Very nice piecing, too. I'm sad that I didn't spend more time and $ in Ashanti while in LA, since these wonderful wax batiks were so reasonable there. Next time! Oh--almost forgot to say that I hand-pick all of my zippers because I really like the look and I find it's easier. But then, I LIKE handwork...

Fabulous dress. Trés au courant.

This look is so flattering on you. The dress is darling and the headwrap has me green with envy. This puts me in the mood for Spring. Lovely review.
