The dress looks absolutely gorgeous, those are not easy fabrics to work with, you did a wonderful job. Do you have a picture that shows the full view of the hem too?

Beautiful. I have never purchased this pattern because I thought it looked like more work than I wanted, but your version is so beautiful, I think I will get it to keep on hand for a very special occasion. Lucky sister!
