This is a truly beautiful dress and it looks like $2000. Thanks for the review, I will keep all your tips in mind when I do mine.

Gil1987: I would definitely interface that front overlay. So odd that they have everything else interfaced but that piece has to support so much weight from the flounce, it needs it more than most of the other pieces. I had a lot of trouble with it and you can see in the pattern photo, the designer did too.

HI, I have just got this pattern and I am glad to read your comments. I am thinking I should inerface the front overlay, would you recommend that.

Oh Ann, it's lovely! Thank you so much for the review. I also have this pattern and haven't decided yet if your review scared or motivated me to stitch this up!

What a beautiful feminine dress, and that shade of blue is wonderful on you. I doubt that I will be making it any time soon in view of all the work, but I'm so glad you did. Great to see it made up.

Thank you for heads up. I just bought this pattern. Your dress is very pretty and the color is cute too. Oh well, I guess I will look at yours until I get the nerves for the many pieces! Great job.

Gorgeous dress! Thanks for the heads up about the multiple pieces. I had no idea it was so complicated from the photo. The flower is a fun feminine touch.

Wow. This was quite a project. It came out beautiful. Anyone inspired to make this dress will find your review invaluable. And how ice that all that yardage was in your stash. What will you buy to replace it? :-)

Wow! Spectacular results! Love the rich color you chose. Great hint about labeling pieces with the painter's tape. Amazing job!

That dress is beautiful and fits you beautifully. I am so jealous of that picture of your upper back/shoulders. It fits you perfectly. Oh, if I could ever get there. Congratulations...another beauty.

Here I get to see it finally! Really pretty! One would never guess at all the pattern pieces and steps. You executed them well and have a lovely dress for all your effort. The color looks wonderful on you too.

This dress is absolutely gorgeaous and the review so useful. I would never have thought that it was so demanding to be made. You look awesome and I much prefer your fabric than the one on the envelop

It is so great to see this dress made up! Congratulations - the style suits you very well

No wonder you needed to make a simple knit top after this challenge. You look wonderful in your very detailed dress. This pattern just screams YOU!

Thanks for the heads up on the construction on this dress. Yours turned out beautifully, and I love the color. I hope you will update when you get the vintage belt done. Very nice work!
