It came out great! The higher back is beautiful, and the 3/4 length sleeves are very nice. You are inspiring me to keep going with my second muslin from the course.

Stick with the course, it is well worth it, especially if you are trying to learn couture techniques...

You can really tell when the Couture class was followed. They all look so excellent! Yours included! You're a perfect Xmas package!

Exquisite! This is what custom made clothing is all about! I'm on the course as well and truly enjoy it!

I like how you eliminated the center front seam for the midriff piece; with the brocade I think it could be somewhat distracting from the rest of the dress. Also, I have to say, it looks like you perfectly matched the pattern for the brocade on the transition between pieces!! I don't know how you did that, but it looks amazing

Your dress is beautiful. The time you took with the project really shows. I'm taking the Craftsy class as well and after my 3rd muslin, the pattern's very flattering on me.

Beautiful job! I am "slowly" doing this course and hope my results are as good. You inspire me!

You look lovely! I have signed up for this class but have not yet started. Your post is an inspiration to get going.

Beautiful dress! You look lovely in it. I am in awe of your couture sewing techniques and the resulting end product.

Gorgeous couture dress! I also have registered for this class, but have yet to make the same dress. Learning all of the couture sewing techniques is worth the class price alone in my opinion. Nice job!

Wow, this is a work of art. What a perfect fit. You did meticulous work. And just in time for the holidays - this is the perfect holiday dress.
