My daughter went to her prom Saturday night, in the Titanic-era dress I made from your pattern. It was fabulous. We made an overskirt of forest green satin, while the dress itself was medium green cotton covered with pearl and sequin-embroidered cream illusion. We trimmed it with gold fringe and gold and green baroque trim. […]

I really love the pattern and was extremely satisfied with my results! The only major alteration I made when using the pattern was to drop the neckline lower. I added some adornments, […]
