You and your dress are both STUNNING. I love the journalesque review you've written, and I applaud your achievement!

Another fabulous dress! You are amazing! The pinned sash is so elegant and adds to the overall glamour of the costume. I'm sure people are looking at you as much as the artwork at the exhibit at the Palace of the Legion of Honor!!

Absolutely awe inspiring. I like what you have downe with the scarf drape and the shortened hemline. You have encouraged me to try this pattern.

I love this shortened version. With a daughter recently married, I couldn't help but think what a perfect mother-of-the-bride dress this would have made. Truly lovely.

you wear this so well, I think I prefer it to the satin version, like you said, it's more versatile, love how the scarf is used in this version
