That IS incredibly beautiful. Any chance of seeing it on a model? Smiley

wow, what an awesome dress. Id agree about seeing it on a model, it looks like it would really flatter any shape, which has always been my problem in things ive tried to sew, ive got big hips and they always seem to show their happy selves in whatever i wear, EXCEPT the one dress i own which poofs out at the waist disguising my happy hips.

Look what youve done to me now, youve made me perfect

Beautiful! What a lovely color, too! I'd love to see it with a white or black or purple velvet wrap/stole!

That's beautiful. Love the color, the lines, everything. It's actually a lot like the basic shape of the Christmas dress I'm hoping to make (or at least of the one I'm picturing in my mind).

Any chance on getting a tutorial on this? I think I've figure out the bottom but I have yet to make a successful strapless top...

As asked, here is a pic of the dress on a real person (me.)  Excuse the crappiness of the picture and the blank expression on my face...I had to take it myself!
to make a strapless top, it's important that you put boning in it.  Sew it right into the liniing, making sure it lines up with the side seams.  The boning helps the top stay up.  I did a princess seam bust, because it's a bit more form fitting.  The skirt is pretty easy to figure out...just a circle skirt left in a sqare shape instead.
I think the dress works best if you use a fabric that has a bit of weight to it.  The skirt drapes better.  I used crepe backed satin.

Very pretty.  I love the color and the styling of the dress.  Did you have a hard time sewing with satin?  The fabric kept sliping and sliding when I was sewing my costume with it.

I get sh*t done!
