(In the pictures can be seen a lovely example of this dress made in Taffeta by one of my customers Tereza from Czech Republic. She made it in a total of 8 hours, costing about 40 US dollars for 4 meters. That's a great price for fabric. Tereza is a professional Theater photographer and made this dress for the Giselle Premiere and everyone admired it. How wonderful to make a beautiful dress such as this stunner and get positive comments made. She looks fantastic, the colour is lovely, the entire dress looks flattering and I love the diamante detail added to the side of the draped section. Well done Tereza, a FREE pattern for you!)

Super pattern! It needs at least 5m in 145cm for the longer version. The instructions seem clear, even of I haven't had the time to do anything but place the pieces on the fabric. I am sure it will be gorgeous

The seller was very kind and got back to me in under 24 hours. I asked them when they could dispatch and they said they would do it that day. Because of this it arrived really quickly and I could have my dress made in time :) The pattern is also great and my dress ended up coming out exactly as I had hoped. Thank you!

Love this pattern. I brought it in the 60's, made 3 dresses then over time lost the pattern. Going to make it up in a more grown up silk crepe de chine.
