Ok, well - I haven't read all the posts so maybe this has been stated already. I would bet that the skirt part of it was cut on the bias. That would be how it would drape so nicely on the lower back, and it would not really have a zipper or anything. You'd need to do some stay-stitching to make sure it doesn't start to bag out, but that bias cut really does amazing things when you want a lovely drape.

Also, I think you did a FABULOUS job, and the shoes go with it perfectly (I so rarely get the shoe thing right!) - you should wear this dress! It looks spectacular on you! Don't compare yourself to the lovely airbrushed model and then rate you and your dress lower. The picture you have of you wearing it - well, just remember, your hair's not done up, no dramatic makeup, you're looking at yourself in a mirror or a photo without photo shoot lighting - those things all make a difference.

All I mean is that what I see is an awesome WOW factor in the dress, and you in it makes it even more WOW! Smiley


P.S. I did just go back and read the posts - and I agree with those who wrote that this fabric/dress call for hand sewing the hem. You'll be surprised how little time it actually takes to roll & sew the hem, and what a BIG difference it makes in how the dress looks.

that dress looks absolutely stunning on your figure. And even if it doesn't look as good as Rhianna's in the picture (although I bet it looks just as good if not better in real life) you have to remember that they use photoshop to make everything pop out more and curve better, especially around the breasts (its true.)
So, anyways, yours looks great, and I wish I had one. You could probably sell them if it didn't take you that much time and effort.

your version is lovely and I would wear it and even buy it if it were at the discount store I frequent (it has some really good stuff that they just didn't sell at pricier stores)
