Great Job, I love the ruffle detail around the top. 

Sometimes you get to change the world, and other times the world changes you.

Thanks for the comments dudes!  Craftster is clearly a place for sharing the love as well as crafty ideas!

midnight: I got the pattern at an op shop.  It's Butterick 4970, view B.  I cut mine a little higher in the back to hide my underwear (I hope).

danirene: I don't think I've ever rocked before - thanks!

kylieultra: I fell in love with this apple green - it's even prettier in real life and the with the depth of the satin it's really beautiful!  I haven't worn the dress yet (except for modelling purposes!) but I haven't noticed the ruffle being a problem.  I also made the dress in cotton and didn't have any problems with that either.  That said, I wish I'd made it shorter from the underarms around the front.  I like it more in the back.

mego and pickyourpocket: I hadn't used satin since making boxer shorts in school, so I was a little nervous about this.  I spoke to a lady at my local sewing shop and she told me to use a fine needle and go slowly.  The hardest parts were the gathering.

I've now made a bag to match the dress, too: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=286309.0

So much to make, so little time!
