I finished up the dress about 30 minutes ago – yee hah!  The party is at 6:00pm, so we’ll be leaving for the Westin in a few hours.  I’ll post a photo of me in the dress later this weekned, along with lots of detailed photos of the final work – it was mostly hand sewing once the main seams were done.  The photos are a pretty good representation of the actual color.

Anyway – here it is:

Also, the pattern is reviewed on PR.

Happy Holidays !  Phyllis

  7. The dress is beautiful. I can tell you are incredibly skilled at your craft. I love the angle of the neckline too, it reminds me of the goblet in the Da Vinci Code.

  11. Stunning! Why don’t they have dresses like this in the dress shops anymore? I haven’t bought a new dress for a long time because I find nothing but junk these days . . . .

  13. I hope it was a great night….I can’t wait to see the photos of you in the dress. It meets the couture mandate of being as beautiful on the inside as on the outside.
