What a great blend of fabric and pattern. I had to look closely to be sure you hadn't added individual feather/leaf petals onto the dress. It looks amazing!

Perfect match of fabric to pattern. I didn't really notice this dress in the magazine, but I'll have to check and see if any of my stash is calling out for it. Beautiful.

I love your fabric. Your dress reminds me of the fish dress that Marion Cotillard wore to the Oscars a few years ago. Gorgeous!

Wow, Froggiegirl you have been sewing up a storm! I have enjoyed reading all of your recent reviews and admiring your new wardrobe! This dress is beautiful and I like the fact that it does not call for a stretch jersey fabric.

This is a great review and I love the dress! Although I feel a little afraid of the "sleeves", I'm going to try it anyway. The fabric you used is awesome!
