Your new version is spectacular. I have a special weakness for brown and blue together.

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

Leslie, both dresses are beautiful. Great idea to use lined stretch mesh for this pattern.

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

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.

A late post to say that you and your dress look smashing! You look so great in brown, and the fabric and pattern are an inspired pairing! Beautiful! Marci

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.

You look lovely in your beautiful, new dress. No wonder the guests were amazed when you told them you made it.

Beautiful dress. It's amazing what we find in our stash when looking!

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

You so exquisite and so does the dress. Clever idea for the cummerbund.

Your dress is lovely and you look gorgeous in it. Excellent review.

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

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

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.

You look gorgeous, Leslie. The dress suits you beautifully.

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

Wow - it turned out great! Good to see a good review of this pattern. I'm in the middle of making this view right now for a wedding next weekend - hope it turns out as nice as yours.

CarolynGM said...
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.

You would rule the red carpet! Elegant and chic!

CynthiaSue said...
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!

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