Thank you, Thank you. The draping on the bottom of the dress was pretty tricky. Let's see if I can explain it in a way that makes sense Smiley First I made a very full skirt, next I made an even fuller and longer skirt. Then I just grabbed handfuls of the outer fabric and tacked it in place with a few stitches. The only real tip I have is to be really patient! And some of my tacks didn't look very nice, so I found pretty rhinestone button-y things to cover up the stitches. You can't see them very well in the photos, but there are buttons inside each gather. I really wasn't sure how to start, so this was how I decided to do it. I didn't use a pattern when I made this dress, but I just found a similar looking gown in a McCall's pattern #5321, check it out.

Thanks for responding.  And don't worry it makes perfect sense.

That looks beautifully made and it fits you really well. It looks very expensive. Also, congratulations Wink

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.
