Fabulous! How brave you are for tackling something in Japanese. It turned out wonderfully, though.

Absolutely gorgeous dress. Love the color, also. It looks great on you. Definitely unique and absolutely worth all the work to make it. You always pick great styles, but this is my favorite for you.

I love the picture you posted here, but when I went to your blog and looked at the back and sides of the dress - wow!!! The dress looks amazing on you and you really need to see the whole thing for the effect. Great job!

how can you post a dress like this without full 100% guaranteed access to the pattern? that is just cruel:):) We might have to tear it to shreds life the 3 wicked stepsisters of Cinderella!

Another very nice dress from Nicegirl - and this one is drop-dead-gorgeous. You look very Cleopatra in that doorway shot. Just think, next time you need a frock for a black tie gala, just repeat this little number in full length black, and you'll be all set.

You do look absolutely beautiful in this dress...wonderfully sophisticated and a great color for you. Wow is all I can say.

That does look lovely on you! I've just got the book, and felt disappointed because I couldn't find anything I liked. I think your photos definitely show this one off better than the model in the book!

What a gorgeous look on you. This dress is really something. And thank you so much for mentioning how easily silk jersey marks. I purchased some but have not sewn it up yet - I will have to be very careful. Unlike your great purchase, unfortunately in Canada I paid $30 a metre for it.

TO DIE FOR!!! The color is stunning on you, the drape accentuates all of the right areas, and I WANT ONE!!! From your experience working with this pattern, is it possible to lengthen it to an evening gown?
10/30/09 7:22 PM
MarshaG. said...
Well......I just couldn't stand it and ordered the book this morning as a "birthday gift" for me! I'm imagining that I can figure out how to lengthen it......*<*

Whhooo baby! Gorgeous Trena! I'll have to take a look for that book!
