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

great recovery from the too low neckline!

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

Looks great! Congrats on your first review. :)

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

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

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

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