That dress is gorgeous! The metallic fabric is incredible - so elegant. Sadly, this dress looks too labor intensive for me, but what a great payoff! Well done!

You're finishing is fabulous! Love the material and overall finish. Got the pattern but will allow a bit more time to ate it on. Thanks for a helpful review.

WOW! This is amazing! Some serious skill being showcased here. I like how close to the original garment your dress looks......honestly, even better. Very well done!

Thanks so much. I can't wait to see others versions of this dress. When I can do bound buttonholes with ease and make a Chanel style jacket, I will consider myself advanced! Right now, I am a happy intermediate.

You did a phenomenal job! I bought this pattern a few weeks back and am looking forward to making it. Fingers crossed that it turns out as lovely as yours.

Super dress. Looks so expensive and well-made. Wish it wouldn't so time-consuming, though...

Wow there's no word to describe how gorgeous looking your dress is. And this review is so on time for me. The dress is next on my sewing project. I've been waiting for a review for ages. Thanks for it; I'll be extra careful with the test muslin I intend to make. This seems to be a mandatory step. Concerning the belt I've just thought about the possibility of altering a purchased belt. Thanks again. I can't wait to start mine.

What I like especially: The silver threads in the fabric, the execution of the collar and sleeves, the belt, the lining--wonderful job!

Beautiful! I have this dress cut out myself and I must say that your craftsmanship and fabric choice are perfect! Your fabric is crisp like the pattern photo and shows off the lines well.

This is an amazing dress, beautiful tailored! The belt technique is quite clever and one I've never thought of.

This is a professionally sewn garment that, when not in use, should hang in a place of honor in your home. Just perfect!

Wow, can't look at the photos from work but the thumbnail looks so good! Worth the hours, IMO!

I'm sorry, Nikarphar. I looked, but I believe this fabric is sold out. It was available back in April.
