I have been googly eyeing that pattern forever! Well, not forever, but ever since I saw it. A masterpiece. Wish I had somewhere to wear a dress like that.

Oh my, to be able to sew up a pattern without any alterations! You are so the Marfy model! Georgeous dress, amazing fabric, how many places or occasions can you find to wear it! Time to knock that skill rating up to advanced.

The dress is absolutely beautiful and your choice of fabric is also magnificent. It is stunning. I too love Marfy patterns though I do find them challenging at times they are far superior in both fit and design than any others.

Wow! I was going to say "spectacular" but I see that word has (deservedly) been used several times already, so I will say "magnificent" instead. Great fabric, great fit, great photos and you look fabulous. Well done!

Thank you all again, your comments are so incredibly lovely....I cannot recommend a class with Susan enough Goodbye Valentino (you have a great blog!) or Marfy patterns, its such a shame they come in so few size options. I know they recommend taking them to a pattern maker to alter but it does defeat the object some what....

Your dress is absolutely stunning. It's remarkable that you didn't make any pattern alterations and achieved such a beautiful fit. I particularly liked your fabric layout - the pattern on the fabric is just perfect on the dress. I really enjoyed seeing all of your muslin construction photos - thanks for sharing them.

You must be soooo patient! But boy did your patience and hard work pay off. So nice that you had Susan K looking in on your work...a memorable experience and a VERY memorable dress! Wow!

I think you have more than intermediate skills. Your patience with the muslin paid off, your dress is a knock out!

Stunning dress! Your fabric is glorious and the perfect choice for this pattern. Thank you so much for all the construction photos. Every time I see another wonderful Marfy creation I am cross all over again that their sizing doesn't cater for petites.

Thank you all so much! I think I fixed the link so that it shows all the photos including muslin now. I'm heading to Marfy to order the new catalog, my poor credit card!!
