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

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

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

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

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

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

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!

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

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.
