That turned out fantastic! Now I know what to do with some not-so-pretty slipper satin I have...I'm going to dye it too. Kudos on the fantastic dress

cute! I have this on my sewing table ready to cut; your review is timely! I'm thinking this may be my "cocktail" dress for Montreal.

I'm pretty sure the people who complimented you actually liked the dress. It is so cute and stylish. The ruffled neckline is very flattering.

Very nice! Looks terrific and you did a wonderful job. I have had this pattern in the queue with the same fabric for some time now; thanks for the nudge to get going on it.

Looks lovely - great save of the fabric. Elegant and so stylish. If i ever make this will use your suggestion of moving the zipper to center back.

Totally gorgeous dress! Love the colour and the style on you. It looks perfect for the wedding you attended, and I know those compliments were all sincere. How could they not be with such a gorgeous dress?

Beautiful dress that's quite flattering on you. The reason your friends offered compliments about your dress is because it is stunning and looks couture!

Looks great and that's a super photo, too.

The dress looks stunning! I'm going to make the same one for a wedding in May in a similar color and really appreciate the detailed review!

waltzqueen said...
Ooooouuu - you made THE DRESS! I've been drooling over it for months but I don't think it would work on me. You look sensational in that style and that color is fabulous with your coloring. No wonder you were drowning in compliments.

Secretsugar said...
This is the first time I've seen this dress where I actually liked it. I don't think your fellow wedding guests were trying to be nice--it looks great on you and highlights your face nicely. I agree with other commenters, too--the color is fantastic with your coloring!

Unfortunately, i wasn't able to leave a comment on your blog lately. So i will do it here: This version of the dress is adorable. So cute and so you! I wish you a happy belated birthday!

Both dresses looks adorable on you!!!

So cute! Boy that collar looks like a challenge!

Both dresses are winners. I think the skirts fit so well, when they could have been poofy front or back. Good job.

There is so much good info in this review. I am making this dress next so your tips will really be helpful. Thanks for reviewing it. I love both your versions.
