Very beautiful work. I really want to use this pattern to make a version of a dress off Sanctuary (sci-fi TV show). It has the very long train. You said that the material you used was too heavy, what would you suggest? Also, do you have photos for your red version of this dress? Your sleepy hollow one is fab also!

Love the front view. (There is an extra "http://" in the link that I took out to get to the front picture.) My dress from this pattern is not nearly as beautiful as yours. I'm going to make it again now that I've seen your version. I think you could lace it up the back and forget the zipper.
