Beautiful dress! I also could not get the pattern photo no matter what I tried. Fortunately, it has been reviewed here before. Here is a working link:

It's a very pretty dress, but I don't understand why you rated it "easy and great for beginners, while the text says it was easy for you, but not for anyone else? It would be nice to also see a pic of the pattern.

Completely enchanting. The colors of the dress and the elegant wrap play off each other so well, the jewelry adds the perfect touch and the pose is lovely. Exquisite!

tres bien!! Very beautiful! I've always seen that pattern and wondered what it looked like. Do put up a picture of the rose silk dress! I'd love to see it!

Tres belle! Wish I could see a pic of the pattern itself, but it's not showing up.

Thank you for posting the review of this dress. It does look wonderful in the solid gold color, not at all like the pattern drawing. I would love to see the close up detail of the bodice with the embroidery. Where do you shop for your fabric?

Your review is very helpful, but I am not able to view your photo - message says "forbidden." I would love to see the picture of your dress.

I tried Bonny's suggestion and got to see the picture. Wow!! Your gown is so lovely.

The copy & paste route let me see the picture also. Lovely! I love your comment "easy for me, not for beginners". It's nice when you advanced sew-ers can keep that type of perspective, since much seems easy for you that once wasn't.

I couldn't see the picture at first, then I tried someone else's suggestion of copying the link location and pasting it into a new window. A beautiful dress. Love the fabric!

Bienvenue! I keep getting the "forbidden" page as well. (tried Ping's suggestion too) :(

Try right-click the project photo, and select 'Open Link in New Window'.... if you still can't access the pic :)
