WOW!! The fit on you is amazing; it is so flattering and much more interesting than basic black

Love what you've done to tweak this dress. You're so right that the dramatic tucked sleeves are a very flattering proportion. And, they look great with the tucked skirt you swapped to from the original. The suggestion for wool crepe- good one. Enjoy partying in your gorgeous dress. Interested to see the daytime incarnation.

Beautiful, beautiful dress! I have had this pattern for a long time, but still have yet to make it. I would not have thought of cotton sateen, but yours looks great!

Stunning dress! The sleeves definitely amp it up a bit! And I love the pleats in the skirt instead of the darts.

Beautiful dress! I have this pattern, its in my 'ought to make this one up' pile, and I do like your variation with the skirt pleats. These seem to echo the sleeve detail rather well. I'll take note of the neckline level issue too when I get around to this make. Did I say great fit too?
