You made a smart choice staying with a fabric type you're best used to. The style is simple, but elegant, & you look REALLY gorgeous! Your husband is a blessed man! The idea about the 1" elastic for the back of the shelf bra was great thinking. All round a GREAT job! Also wonderful to see a really happy couple together.

Bonnie, the dress is wonderful and you look fabulous. Just last night I watched an old movie, and a woman wore a Halston dress that looked remarkably like this dress.

Beautiful, stunning dress. You worked out the rolling issue wonderfully and now that you are experienced with formal wear you can move onto a more difficult design for next year's ball. The dress looks fabulous on you!

You look elegant and your gown fits like a glove. It's really OK for people to know you made something, especially if you get the compliment first. Then they are typically even more impressed.

Bonnie, my DH does the very same thing. It's because he is so proud of your talent! And he has good reason! Your dress is elegant, tasteful, beautiful, and fits you perfectly. Lovely, lovely!

You look STUNNING! This is such a classic formal with chic lines. Great thinking with the elastic to stop the rolling. You wear this well.

Ooh, I made this last night and I'm using your elastic trick today - mine did the same thing with rolling. Good tip!
