The dress, fabrics and designs are stunning, but you in it, make it fabulous! Your training is really showcased here, and you should be so proud of it. Keep up the great work!

Lovely, just lovely. Great colour for you, not many can wear that salmon hue. Wish I could. Love the asymmetric neckline. Did you stagger the back seams a fraction so as to have less bulk meeting at one place where the zipper would go? Think I see that. Hope you don't outshine the bride. :)

It looks great Melissa - the mix of gloss with matte is really effective. And I was there at its inception so I feel like a Godmother :-)

What a great idea to use both sides of the fabric--it is perfect!

This is a fascinating process! You did amazing work - the flowing lines are so organic, the tone-on-tone contrast is super classy, the perfect stitching is the cherry on the cake. Great job!

Nice dress! I like that you have used a subtle contrast for the different swirls.

Wow, I think this is such an amazing dress! I love how you highlighted the fabulous curving lines by using the matte and shiny of the fabric. I'm so glad you didn't use a really dark fabric either, as the magic of the dress would be lost.
