I just love your dress! What a fantastic print and style :) You look great! I must share something with you about my experience with pressing silky fabrics. I made myself a satin robe last year and was having difficulty pressing seams (especially the tie belt!). I had some hockey pucks on hand that I use for pattern weights (tip I actually picked up in the patternreview book). I pressed part of a seam and immediately put hockey pucks over the part I just pressed (usually about the length of the iron). After allowing it to cool, it was pretty flat! I may have had to repeat it for stubborn spots, but for the most part, it worked fine! Hockey pucks are my good sewing companion, and best of all, I got them really cheap at a thrift store! :)
