The dress is beautiful. I'm amazed that you could do so many custom fixes while under fire for hurried execution. Kudos to you!

don't even try to say you didn't upstage the bride by your little homage to her in the review. The correct review would be "I totally stole the show an I loved it!":). This is a great color with those baby blues of yours!

You would rule the red carpet! Elegant and chic!

Oh my, that is just spectacular. Also excellent justification for maintaining a stash of fine fabrics. How else could you turn something like this while under the gun.

$2/yard? Wow. Don't you love the flabbergasted reactions? He he, I know I do. This gorgeous dress deserves many of those.

hey, long time,no review! No wonder you flabbergasted so many people! This dress looks lovely, and I think turning the gathers to pleats was a really good idea.

Just beautiful!!

Catbird said...
It's staggering that such beauty came from $2/yd fabric! Wow .... it's completely gorgeous on you.

Re Becca said...
Absolutely stunning! I like your use of pleats instead of gathers, they are so much more flattering.

Your dress is gorgeous! Fantastic result. The women would be even more flabbergasted if they knew the fabric was only $2yard!

Leslie, what a gorgeous design on you! It is so perfectly elegant and chic on you.

Hi Leslie, fantastic dress on an equally gorgeous woman. I laughed out loud at your comment re your husband, mine would just roll his eyes and groan (thinking this would be encouragement for a larger stash)! And I agree with Ann, great sewing under pressure.

It is spectacular, I love your creative choice of fabric giving it a whole different elegant look rather than the springy selection in the pattern drawings.

Leslie, you have done it again. What a wonderful wear-to-weddings dress! I shall file this away for future reference.

The new one is as gorgeous as your first one! I still have that blue/brown fabric sitting in my stash.
