Gorgeous. You looked right out of the 50's you must have wowed the audience. You are amazing to be able to sew like that and to be able to sing - what talent.

I've wanted to sew a formal dress from the Eva Dress site for a long time, but have always been nervous just in case I picked something too detailed, or not a suitable style/silhouette. I've looked at this pattern before, & thank you so much for your comment that it's not as restrictive at the lower flounce. Your dress is absolutely stunning; your fabric choice couldn't have been better. A fabulous look & even more amazing sewing job. Thanks for all the tips! This will be my first "formal" style purchase from Eva dress. Congratulations on a successful evening; you looked elegant & beautiful!

Spectacular. Perfect for the event and perfect for you. It must have been such a thrill to wear it. I like your idea for the summer dress also.

You simply look magnificent. Quelle robe madame, quelle robe! Perfect review. By chance Madeleine was there to save you. Your muslin is so nice, can't you dye it and wear it as a summer dress ;-) Quel travail de maitre ! I am so fully impressed.

I have been in suspense since this drama began and I could hardly wait to see how it all turned out. This was worth the wait -- it's absolutely gorgeous!! You look tiny, elegant, happy and at ease on stage. You must have set a speed record on this project, and you proved you have nerves of steel. I am so impressed and I LOVE your favorite b&w picture. Excellent review, too. Wow.

Oh m'gosh. What an amazing glamorous dress and you look simply STUNNING wearing it. Only 2 days to make it? That has to be some kind of sewing record. Thanks for the very helpful review and the lovely pics.
