Beautiful Dress! The differences between the muslin and finished dress are amazing. What a great job with all the alterations! (I can totally relate to this challenge, as it's mine, too...I'm going to come back to this, because I still need to fix that above bust fold in my 2 sheath dress patterns.) And, well, I really love the color on you and the sheen to the fabric just makes even more beautiful!

This looks fabulous. I think you've discovered a tried and true keeper - it's timeless, elegant, and it fits you beautifully. Think about making it in other colors too!

Love it!! I think I have the same magenta fabric that I just can't bear to cut until I find something as fabulous as this sheath.

You look great! And what a colour! It sounds like the dress was a lot of work, but the result is brilliant!
