Don't you look lovely!

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

Gorgeous dress! I love the material.

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!

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.

MaryDB said...
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.

What a gorgeous dress! Bravo!

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

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

blue mooney said...
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 lovely and you look gorgeous in it. Excellent review.

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

Well, of course you were getting compliments at the wedding! This dress is gorgeous and looks very beautiful on you!

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.

Ingiepops said...
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.

sew2little said...
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

What a classic beautiful dress! Thanks for the detailed review, it looks great on you.

Amelia Airhead said...
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.

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

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

Jacqui315 said...
The new one is as gorgeous as your first one! I still have that blue/brown fabric sitting in my stash.

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