This is absolutely stunning. I can just picture Lauren Bacall coming down some long staircase swishing this skirt.

Lovely job; you certainly managed around the pattern problems. Great to see your review. Looks like you are already an accomplished sewist.

Wow, that is fantastic! I love the gold contrast. I am reading the Chronicles of Narnia to my kids right now, and that looks exactly like the costumes pictured in those books. -Ann

Lovely - you sure took this seemingly basic pattern to the next level.

Absolutely gorgeous! The cowl neckline compliments the cuffs tremendously. I'd second Gorgeous Things; very Narnian. Is that crepe-back-satin?

Thanks everyone for your encouraging comments! Philo: It's poly satin as mentioned, crepe back would have been too...expensive. :)

Thank you for including remarks on how it feels to wear this dress, allusion to the experiential richness of wearing costumes.
