McBurbage - the first time, I did some of the elaborate trim, but not all of it. I don't have a pleating machine so I changed the hem trim. However, I plan to make this again in the next year and do it perfectly according to the original instructions (so I guess I have to buy a pleater before I do that).

I think that fabric would make me go crazy, slippery fabrics hate me :) Good job.

Wow! I'm sure your client is thrilled- what a lot of work for you! I'd love to see the original pattern, for comparison.

Did you do all the decoration and elaborate hemming the first time you made this pattern up?

Absolutely fantastic review - thanks! I think I'd have nightmares if I had to work with that beautiful slippery fabric. Wonderful job!
