    Beautiful dress and the fit is perfect. I looked at the picture of the whole wedding party and I’d have to say yours is the best.

      Thank you! I have to say, I was very nervous about making sure that my dress blended well with the other girls. It was a risk to sew from a vintage pattern when I knew they would all be wearing contemporary rtw dresses. :-D
