That combo will look gorgeous! Are you adding lace too, or is it just the draping that you are copying?

What a wizard you are! A custom gown in, what?, scarcely more than 24 hours? The dress is adorable on Lauren. I can't wait to see the silk version.

Very cute dress and inspiring for me to read, since the dress bodice is fairly similar to my entry. But you clearly saved a lot of time draping rather than drafting. And the result is gorgeous.

Marji-I just realized I never left a final comment after you finished-WOW! You did such a great job in a notoriously difficult fabric and you made it look EASY. I sure hope Lauren appreciates the amazing amount of work that went into this. And the notes on your blog are really useful as well. Thanks for such a great review!

Fabulous! I have watched your progress on your blog and they really came out great! What a pleasure that your sil let the girls pick styles and a color that they loved. These are dresses that they will wear again. The girls look wonderful. I have passed on your website find in several posts. It is great to have such a great resource.

Marji, your work on this dress (as well as Katie's dress) is quite awesome. I hope you got as much satisfaction from your Labour of Love as Lauren clearly did. Thank you for sharing your skill. Lovely, Lily
