You did a great job on this and look great in it too. I made it as a jumper (and reviewed it) but yours looks much better---a professional job in my opinion (I agree it was difficult to figure out what went to what!) Keep on sewing!

Love your blog post! That smile is well-deserved joy! From the first time I saw the pattern, I have an image of Demi Moore in it. You outshine her! And not only that, YOU made the dress!

Your skill clearly shines through on this dress, especially the top stitching...and in white no less! I can see why you're proud of it.

Good for you for tackling this pattern! I love the Vogue styles with the interesting design lines, but this one scared me. Very nicely done.

what a great dress, and such a tricky pattern, don't think I would have the patience, but you look fantastic.

Your dress is fantastic! And it looks marvelous on you. I bow to you. I have looked at this pattern many a day for my daughter (never for my body), but it truly seemed to nerve wracking for my patience. From your blog, I was right. More kudos to you for doing it extremely well!

So courageous to take this project on! Yikes - I saw, admired and ran in the other direction, ha ha. It really is smashing on you. A real head-turner. Well done!
