I love the fabric. It really evokes the mystery/fantasy. You look like the queen of wood nymphs. The elaborate belled sleeves on some of this period/fantasy custumes really do pull down the shoulders. I have made several different patterns and ended up adding a ribbon/tie in the back to hold the shoulders together. I have been wondering if some sort of loop to attach to the bra straps would work? Any body else have some useful ideas for this problem?

Oooh the ribbon behind the shoulders would be a great idea! Loops to the bra strap wouldn't work for those heavy sleeves. It would probably pull them down too. Plus because of the width at the shoulders I was wearing a strapless anyhow.

I love the look you have creaated! Very flattering and romantic. I have this pattern, but I have been stalling on sewing it up - I must get to it now you have inspired me. Thanks for the review and the information about the sleeves.
