So pretty! I also love the cap sleeves.

Thank you very much!

Wow, Super cute!! Would love to see it on you! Did you draft the cap sleeves yourself or use a commercial pattern for them?

Thanks! The cap sleeves I found searching 'How to add sleeves to a sleeveless dress'. I love this type of sleeve since it was super easy to self draft.

Wow that is amazing. Can I ask, did you do the silk organza underlining? I'm currently in the process of doing the bodice part of the dress, and I have to say, I disagree with Susan, it's not fun to do all that hand sewing. :-(

Thanks! In all honesty I have to admit that I didn't follow the complete 'Couture guideline' and just added a very basic lining. 'Couture' enough for me anyway. :-)

The print really makes this a romantic dress as well as the sleeves. I would love to see this on a human body; you did a great job. It makes me think Spring!

Very pretty. I need to start mine now. Watched the videos twice now. Paranoid about the fitting. I don't have any seamstress or sewing friends here in San Antonio tx:(

Thanks for your comment, but don't worry. The muslin will be your leader to a perfect fit. Have fun sewing!
