Era Vera,
check out the invisible zippers at your friendly local fabric store. It installs a little differently from a normal zipper and uses a special presser foot on your sewing machine, but instead of a visible zipper where your zipper is, it just DISAPPEARS into the seam! (I love 'em, but use them only in places where the zippers won't have a lot of stress on them,...sheathes, etc)

Certainly don't feel stupid! If you live long enough you'll see all kinds of "NEW and IMPROVED" stuff, and it's hard to get it all in one gulp! Hopefully, we learn something new everyday. Smiley

Yeah, invisible zippers are set into an open seam, so when you zip it up, the seam closes along with the zipper, so all you see is the seam, NOT the zipper.  There is more work involved into setting a zipper like this,(like basting before sewing, another presser foot, etc), but the result is so worth it.  It's a beautiful clean finish.

MindWhore-  Your dress turned out absolutely beautiful!!!  I was considering this pattern yesterday, but since it didn't have any real model pics in the book, & Vogue patterns being so expensive, I chickened out.  Now that I've seen your wonderful real-life results, I'm gonna give it a try on my next fabric store trip.  Again, nice job, it turned out great!  :0)

Wow, that turned out beautifully. I agree that it's gorgeously 1920s. I'm tempted to try, although lace frightens me. I still haven't graduated from stitching stuff out of bedsheets.

I have seen a picture of one of the shorter versions made up in the June/July 2002 British "Vogue Patterns" magazine.  Ever since I have been hoping I could develop the skills to make it!  I love this pattern and I love your dress, you look wonderful!

Dude, I just bought that pattern, and haven't started making it yet.  How did it go for you?  Anything I should know before I start?

This is funny. I bought this pattern last fall in hopes of making it my wedding dress. Unfortunately, I didn't buy the right size. The slip fit nicely and I was encouraged, but then I got to the lace and it went down hill from there. I ended up ditching the project completely and buying a dress on clearance at Kaufman's (local dept. store).  Tongue

But... your dress looks gorgeous. Great job! I hope you had a great time at your prom. (making everybody jealous with your totally unique gown, I'm sure) Wink

I thought this pattern was great, and it wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be. It's a lot of work, though. And the lace requires some patience.
