Agreed the velvet is too heavy for the bodice, a shame because it is a beautiful fabric. Despite this you have had far more success than anyone else attempting this tempting pattern.

As usual, you never cease to amaze me with your talent.

You look stunning as always! The dress in velvet works on you because you're so slender. Love the blue; gorgeous colour on you. So glad you finished it and shared it with us. Thank you.

I noticed there is only one other review of this pattern, despite being around for a while and that reviewer had a lot of problems with it. This looks gorgeous, although the result was not as anticipated with the choice of fabric. Would you recommend this pattern?

Wow, you pull off the 40's look so well. That velvet does look challenging, but you did a great job.

Gorgeous! So sorry you are disappointed with it, but those looking at you will not be. This is a stunning color on you.

This dress is lovely! The fabric is fabulous, and must be so nice to wear. Although a lighter fabric might have draped more to your liking over the bodice, the velvet is lovely. This is a fantastic color for you.

I can see where a lighter fabric would have been a nice choice for this pattern. But I see nothing wrong with this courageous choice. I love the way the velvet folds into sweets curves on your bodice. I think the color is dreamy and as always you wear it so well. I think rushing a project is always trouble and that then makes one less appreciative of the outcome than she would be otherwise. Your dress is amazing and I always look forward to seeing your creations.

I think this is a knock out. The color, the style, you in it! I know that feeling when you are unhappy with something you made -- you wish you had used a lighter fabric. But not knowing this as the viewer, I think this is just plain gorgeous. Wear it a lot.

The colour is gorgeous. A lighter fabric than velvet might have been a better choice, but nevertheless the dress is much too good to waste and you should wear it sometimes.
