I prefer it with the lace on the waistband too. 
Looks stunning.

That is beautiful, and I agree with the other two about the lace on the waistband - like Elnnina, I think it makes it more of a piece.
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

I agree with the others and like the lace at the waistband.

Gosh, that's amazing!  Like the others, I like the lace round the waistband too.

Fabulous dress @charlotte! Another one 'for' the lace on the waist.

I love both versions of the dress, but if I had to choose, I’m out of step with everyone else. I think it looks more striking and chic without the lace.. It will be stunning either way. You’re very talented  :D

Beautiful! I prefer it with the lace on the waistband as to my eye it pulls the whole dress together.

Your dress is absolutely beautiful @charlotte !  Along with the others, I prefer the lace covering the waistband - it makes it look more like a wedding dress than an evening ensemble.

Jessie, who is very happy to be here!!  :),  but who has far too many sewing machines to be healthy, and a fabric stash which is becoming embarrassing.

Well I've just read through all this and may I say "Wow!"

Your future husband is a very lucky man and that dress is amazing!
The thought of starting to make a new shirt for myself has my brain having a stroke! Envious of your sewing talent? Moi?  :laughing:

So pretty! Another vote for lace on the waistband.
It's just fabric. We can out-think it.

We need a "gorgeous" button for this thread. "Like" just isn't enough.
Beautiful work.
