Beautiful color combination and embroidery. Looks like you achieved a perfect fit. Hopefully you'll enjoy wearing it again soon. Too pretty to keep hanging in the closet too long!

The dupioni and embroidery make what could have been a casual dress into a stunning dressy look!

The embroidery is a very nice touch and the color combination is so attractive. Sorry you had to miss the wedding, but your dress is lovely. Great review.

Oh, I love the colour! And nice job on the zipper. I can never get those things right. I'm looking forward to seeing how it looks on you. :)

The embroidery is a nice touch. Like the idea of lining and invisible zipper

Very nice tunic. The color is beautiful -- great color combination with the embroidery. I especially like your choice of embroidery -- I've been trying for weeks to decide on just what designs to use on something similar!

A lovely top. The colours are fabulous, and the embroidery is a nice, distinctive touch.

What a lovely result, & I love the machine embroidery! (where did you get that, it looks familiar?) after all the effort you've gone to to get a great fit it would be a shame not to make another!
