Ooh, very nice
My dress is in the custom dusky rose chiffon, which possibly lacks some of the sheen seen in the reference image. The pleating is not quite as tight, but still, very nice. Unfortunately, I had to get the shoulders taken in MASSIVELY (you could fit a clenched fist between the fabric and my arm) - which because of how well the dress was constructed [very well] cost me a fair bit to take in. I'm not sure why this should be - I have very wide upper arms, and we measured 'the widest part of the arm' - which perhaps is somewhere else on the master pattern? The lining was a bit odd, which I took in myself, otherwise the lining gaped upwards and refused to stay under.
