    An incredible creation – you should be so proud! I can only imagine the amount of hard work (and fabric!) that went into this. So glad you could share it with us :)

      Thanks ever so much! My fingertips are still recovering from the 12m of hem stitching! But all worth while

    OH MY GODDDDDDDDDDDDD IT IS GORGEOUS!!! I adore all details, the buttons, the broche, the floating chiffon crossover the front, the sort of tale at the back!! couldnt be more beautiful. and fits marvellous. Love how the bride has accesorized it. the headband, the shoes! really amazing, I appreciate all the details, it is a delight for the eyes!! A pity we can find this pattern!
