Michelle, two stunning dresses! Fabulous style and workmanship. I think you need to up your rating to Advanced. Thanks for a great review.

I bet you were the belle of the reunion, "who is that woman in the gorgeous dress?" You did wonderful finishing, a work of art, wear it proudly!

BOTH of your dresses are SO pretty and very well tailored. I was so busy looking at it on YOU, I forgot to even look at what pattern it was -- ha! I appreciate your thorough review.

Fantastic! I love how this looks on you. The facing solution is very good. Thanks for showing it. If you have issues with pieces not matching up, especially when you alter, make sure that you walk the seams before you cut. This way you can be sure that the seams are actually the same size, which as you've said is pretty common.

Thanks for your detailed review with tutorial refs and observations about fit on a curvy figure. I love the photo of the topstitched revers and the shaped sleeve. Have you offered your photos to Hot P for their gallery? It would be a good deed.
