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.

Lovely gown but what a huge effort.

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!
