All the time it took to sew up was well worth the end result. The dress is lovely and looks beautiful on you.

Stunning mother of the groom. The dress is lovely in every way: fit, color, fabrication. And the pin is the perfect touch. Congratulations on your success.

Your dress is absolutely sensational - color, fabric, style, and above all, perfect fit. It was clearly worth working your way through all 65 construction steps. I am very impressed!

What an amazing dress for an amazing woman. You are absolutely beautiful in every way and glow in your blush pink dupioni dress. Elegant as always, I bet you were the most beautiful MOG ever. Your workman and final product is quite couture.

You look so glamorous in this dress. It was the right decision to make something really special for this important day. When I look at the photos, it's obvious you are feeling beautiful and rightfully so. Congrats on a job well done!

Christa, I've never seen a prettier dress NOR have I seen a prettier woman WEARING such a dress, and that's not because I'm biased, either! Your wedding outfit is a work of art, resplendent with EXCEPTIONAL tailoring and fit details. I hope you'll display this on Meggie's dress form for a while, so you can enjoy it even longer. THANKS for including Karen and I in SO MUCH FUN, getting ready for the wedding. I'm STILL ticked at myself that I didn't send you a tiara! Heh-heh-heh. :o)

Christa, what a spectacular piece of work this is! Annette picked exactly the right word -- resplendent -- as well as picking exactly the right fabric for this gorgeous dress! And those shoes are perfect with it. I LOVE all the pictures. You look like you love what you're wearing and that's the essence of style.

Very nice, sharp and 'rich'... great shoe match too ;) ... *I* think you should make another in a hot deep color ... red. Very nice looking dress.

What an absolutely beautiful dress (and MOG, too). The pale pink silk is just the most perfect fabric for that dress. I also love the pin you used to hold the drape in place. Well worth those 65 steps!

cleverkitty said...
I have to admit I was wondering if you made a dress for yourself for the Wedding. When it came to my mailbox that you wrote a review I said YES THIS IS IT!!! So glorious and impressive this dress is on you and your family looks wonderful thanks for the photo's. You have had a lot of commitment making dresses this year you deserve the best Mom Award!

You look so amazing!! Actually, you look better than the models on the pattern envelope (I mean it!). The fabric is a great choice (love the pale pink silk) and I am very inspired by your beautiful brooch. It looks you had a great time, too! (What a gorgeous family you have!)

Christa, first of all I want to say Congratulations on your son's wedding and very happy occasion! How wonderful that you sewed a most beautiful and perfect dress for yourself. So special too was the involvement and support of your dear friends in the selection of dress and style. You did an absolutely outstanding job and you look so amazingly beautiful in it and so happy. "Joy"

Wow! You are gorgeous! And so is the dress!! I love it. I have to have this pattern. I will make it for myself and save it for..... I have no idea, but I just love it! Where did you purchase the applique? Or did you make it?

Thanks SOOOO much for all the really nice comments!!! Sew it Seams, I used a brooch (also from my dear friend, Annette!) instead of an applique for the sash.

Fabulous! Thank you for this review. I am just about to embark on this project for my own sons wedding! I hope mine looks as good as yours! Did you underline it and if so with what? I am concerned the silk will wrinkle.
