    What a beautiful and elegant dress! I am sure you were the Belle of the Ball! I’ve always liked this Butterick pattern as well, and the one shoulder is very flattering. Nice job!

      thank you for the lovely compliment ! As a matter of fact, I did get a few positive comments at the ball (always nice to hear) The pattern really is fabulous. I was a bit worried at first about the one shoulder, clothes like that normally don’t sit too well on me and tend to hang down a bit which can of course sometimes turn out a bit embarassing :-( , but not so this one, fits perfectly !
