Beautiful bridesmaid dress! I'm glad your daughter likes it as much as you and I agree that the style would make a very cute casual dress too. So nice that you have the fitting issues resolved. And... the side zipper looks perfectly installed. Great work!

Very pretty dress. I agree the dress would be nice in a casual fabric.

Lovely work. That looks like a very useful pattern with the other completly different top options as well.

BEAUTIFUL! I too love that it's the matte side of the fabric (much classier, I think). :o) As for the zipper, WHAT ZIPPER? Heh-heh-heh.

Nice dress, Ruth! Your side zip, and the fit of the dress on your daughter is perfect. Very nice sewing, as always!!! :-)

A beautiful dress. I agree about the side zipper - you've sewn it in perfectly. I have a pattern with a side zipper, so maybe now I'll try it.

What a beautiful dress! Your daughter looks lovely. The color is gorgeous, and I'm a fan of the "wrong" side of the satin as well. Thank you for this review.

I love the color of the dress as well, and the neckline looks perfect! Well done!

Two very pretty dresses, and both beautifully made. I love the print fabric, too.

Both versions are beautiful. I really love the casual gauzy fabric for summers. Your daughter looks lovely in both!

Both dresses are beautiful! It's great when you can use one pattern to create two completely different looks, one formal and one casual, just by fabric choice.

Ooooh, I love the second version, too! That fabric gives it a whole different look. Ellen looks so pretty! Very nice sewing.

Both dresses are lovely! Isn't it great to use the same pattern in very different fabrics?

Did you sew the zipper enclosed into the lining where you don't see the raw edges? How is that done? Was raising the neckline difficult?

Just now seeing your review~ what a fantastic job on both dresses! You sew beautifully! Perfect setting of the zipper.
