The dress is lovely! The story about having to seam rip yourself out of it is too funny. Thanks for the review and the laugh. :)

This is totally gorgeous on you Annie. LOL about the seam ripper escape. Once you make the lavender crepe version you will have two choices to wear to the wedding! I agree with is a stunning design.

Now that's a new way to get out of a dress - just get your seam ripper!!! LOL! The dress looks very lovely on you!

Absolutely gorgeous dress on you! Well worth the (too funny) seam ripper fiasco. Can't wait to see the lavender one. Please post a pic when it's done. You'll look fabulous at the wedding.

Lovely dress and a great job. Thanks for the laugh about the try on. I've not managed that particular feat.........yet. :)

Wow, I'd never have thought that navy techno taffeta could look so good! Nice job, pretty dress, and lol on the seam ripper escapade.

Great dress. I love navy dressy-dresses but I can't wait to see the lavender one. I totally understand having to deconstruct to get out of a dress - it has happened to me too. Couldn't get it above or below my more-than-ample boobs.

wow that looks fantastic .. I am a huge fan of making garments twice rather than muslining the first one - why do all that work and not be able to wear it afterwards? Your first version is just gorgeous and I will use it to vindicate my laziness!

I love your seam ripper story. It's very helpful for fitting/fabric info. It was good to read you are making one for a wedding. When I saw the photo (and thus had to come read your review), my first thought was "that would be great for a wedding".

Whoah! Your muslin could be the actual dress for the wedding. You look gorgeous in it. I am certain the next one will also be a stunner. Love the seam ripper story, as it is exactly something that would happen to me!

Great dress! Very funny about seam ripping your way out of the dress. It looks great now and thanks for the heads up about using stretch fabric for this dress.

YOu story is so hysterical, and since your dress looks so sophisticated one would never guess what a pickle you were in!!!

Thanks for the helpful information! Yikes, I don't know how you remained calm (if you did) while snipping your way out of a dress. Just thinking about it gives me claustrophobia. Eek! You look FABULOUS in this dress, by the way.

Pretty dress. Funny review. :)

Very nice and, I have to admit, I've had to do the same thing! My husband laughed and did not help me one bit. He did not score points for that one.

How does the Burda Style number (427) translate to the pattern number you'd find in the store? Thanks.

The dress looks gorgeous, and the review made me LOL. I also love your accessories with this outfit. Very stylish. Luckily, I'm making mine in a stretch cotton (purely by accident. I just really loved the print) so, hopefully, will have extra wiggle room through the hips.
