I was looking for another pattern and ran across your review. This dress and it's shorter cousin, look wonderful on you! It is very flattering and very fun. I would love to have seen the back of the longer version.

Your evening dress is absolutely amazing, as are the accessories and the casual one is great as well.

You make me all so happy! I'm glad you enjoyed marycds: I have made the embroidery to the purse my self :)

Nice embroidery. I like the handbag you made from an embroidered flower.

Gorgeous! Love the color & dresses..

WOW. You did such a fabulous job on the embroidery. I'm so impressed that you even digitized it yourself. But the most amazing thing is that purse! Was that a pattern that so cleverly closes and makes a flower? If so, I'd love to know where you got the pattern.

What a way to make the pattern versatile. The look very nice and you did a great job fitting them to you.

Beautiful, and I love your short /knit fabric version, too! What a great "thinking outside the box" idea. :) :)

Wow, the wedding dress is amazing. Love all the special details you made. I've made that flower! But with paper for scrapbooking. I also love the knit version.

Both dresses are beautiful! Your embroidery designs are amazing! Great job on both garments!

beautiful dresses, both of them. I never would have looked at a bridal gown for a less formal dress, but it turned out so well.

You have made this pattern so versatile, and have 2 fabulous dresses. You are obviously a very talented lady, and not just at sewing, your jewelery is terrific too.
