Wonderful version of this dress! Lucky lady, did she say what she would do with the separate top layer?

This is one of those wonderful Vogue patterns that make you wish you had a formal event to go to. Love your version; wonderful fabric combination. Thanks for the info on taking out the neck gaping.

Lovely, lovely job! I really like the idea of the separate tunic. I could see that in a coordinating lace fabric too! -Ann

What a gorgeous formal! You should get lots of referals from this happy client. Lots of helpful tips here.

That is *gorgeous*! I always loved this dress in the catalog- but as a SAHM I just can't think of a good place to wear it, lol. Thanks for sharing!

You get a ton of credit alone for persevering and finding the right color gradations (and in silk to boot!) Wonderful gown.

What a beautiful dress. You must also be credited for having a wonderfully developed color sense.

What a beautiful gown! I have often wondered how this one would look on a real person. Your client must be positively delighted.

Thank you for making this dress! I've been mulling over buying the pattern for some time and I love being able to see it on a real person!

What a lucky client you have! How did you hem the layers, by the way?

Very pretty dress. My hat is off to you for finding graded blues for the overlay.

Just saw this review! Wow, beautiful. I'm curious how wide your fabric is and where you got it!

I'm in the UK and my source only sells wholesale, I'm afraid.

A dress for me! But where do I find the 60" material needed? Silk georgette would suit me better!
