IDEA! Have a formal Oscar's Night party! and perhaps a glittering rhinestone necklace . . . OK, I admit I love shiny baubles.

Love the va va vooom gown! You are dripping glamour and your hair style complements the gown beautifully. How lucky you had that fabulous fabric too!

Your dress looks beautiful! The current Australian vogue features a Lanvin silk tulle dress that is very reminiscent of yours. It retails for $8640!!

A perfect meeting of fabric, pattern, and wearer. And sewist. You look stunning and adorable. Accolades also to your eye for fabric: I vaguely remember seeing this at Exquisite but I never would have envisioned such a perfect destiny for it.

Worth every penny and every minute of work - you look gorgeous. (And I too have lost my ability to insert a regular zipper, amazing).

The bride is right: you DO look like a movie star! The dress looks perfect, the flowers are lovely, and your hair is exactly right for the style of the dress. Quite amazing!

I've already commented on your blog, but this is worth complimenting twice (or more)...Stunning!

You look stunning in this dress! And what a marvelous job of converting it from a cocktail dress. Next, send us a picture of you reclining on a sofa in this dress, drinking wine and being fed grapes by a good-looking guy in a toga all day! Seriously, thanks for another wonderful review.

Thanks for the photo of the front bodice pattern! I tried to make this dress last summer, and it was so roomy in the chest area I got completely discouraged to go further. I'm giving it a second chance, thanks!
