Lovely, elegant dress - a beautiful job, which must be very gratifying after such a painful sewing experience!

Thank you for all the nice comments! Two positives I should mention about this dress: it is very comfortable and the shoulder strap placement makes it very bra-friendly.

This turned out beautifully, despite the pain in the neck-itus! The color is great ( I love turquoise!) and the wrap is the perfect touch.

Very nice. I like the contrasting godets, particularly with that wrap - what a great outfit. Neat effect with the varying length godets.

The sewing may have been cursed, but the final result is blessed! The outfit came together beautifully in the end.

What a stunning dress, and a beautiful match with your wrap. Too bad it generated so much bad karma, because it is so pretty and you've already fitted it--could be cute in a future version!

Lovely dress. Your wrap and the contrasting godets look like they were meant to be.

Drsue, your dress is a knockout! The process does sound cursed though -- anything that could go wrong apparently did. I admire your patience in sticking to it.

Drsue the dress is wonderful. I also like the contrasting godets. You certainly had a challenge and are a better sewist for it! We've all be there and it's not fun. I enjoyed your review - thanks for all the detail.

This just lovely. I bet you'll feel elegant and beautiful wearing it. The contrasting godets look great.

Good thought on sewing the CB seam last. Thanks for emphasizing this. Glad it turned out so well after all the difficulties.

What a lovely dress. I had to laugh at "I realized I had picked part of the dress skirt onto the zipper on one stitch". Something I would do. :) Sounds like this was a sewing challenge, but glad the results were so great. I've had my own sewing challenge this weekend, so I understand. Your wrap is perfect with this dress.
