She looks so gorgeous! And thank you for a great review and your great explanation and links for boning and waist stays.

Very pretty! It's amazing what that one little piece of ribbon can do for a dress, isn't it!? (I'm quite the fan of waist stays myself.)

Very nice! Love it! I have also put boning in the lining instead of the outer fabric before, glad to know I'm not crazy!

Wow! No wonder she is grinning madly, the dress is simply breath taking. Thank you for your detailed review. It's all that work no one can see that makes all the difference.
