Great review and good job! I too have been pleasantly suprised with Simplicity lately...and frankly I'm now a fan. Haven't had much of a problem with their patterns this year!

What a fantastic dress! It is dazzling on you. That's amazing that you were able to find the fabrics at Walmart.

Katherine - Last night (Saturday) I went to a party given by friends from the theatre - most of the people there were local actors and directors. Thanks for the lovely comments y'all!

This is lovely, what a beautiful colour. I was going to sew this too sometime *g* as I have the pattern in my stash and now I am inspired to give it a go knowing (your) end result looks so good!

Love the color of your dress. I just finished this pattern in gold liquid lame with a black velveteen vest. Spectacular. I found some directions confusing as well-Instructions for one view would give results for another. It all worked out in the end.

Annika, you look stunning! You're absolutely right, this would be gorgeous in another version with Celtic embroidery. I hadn't realized how versatile this pattern is.

Great costume. Sounds like you had nearly as much fun making it as you will have wearing it! I think I need to visit the Wal-Mart sale table more often.

WOHOHOHOOWWW!!! Great Great great costume & great wig :) Love it! I have this pattern too but I'm trying to sew mainly from my stash at the moment and I don't have a suitable one for a costume like that but I will sew this one up in 2005! I really like your new picture too!
