I did send a photo to Superior as well because they should know how well their thread works.
She looked so happy in your dress, which was why I asked, why she would not wear it.

How special this dress will be ... a collaboration of both of your ideas and abilities to create a very special and unique custom dress. The quilting detail is amazing, and I can only imagine what it will be like once you add on all the other trimmings that she wants.

It's so beautiful I'm at a loss for words (something my friends say doesn't happen very often!)

Know what? You could make a flowy skirt and be done with it. Years ago they always made dresses in two layers like that. I am thinking maybe layers and layers of tule and lace would be beautiful and make it nice and long like you want. Or perhaps a long skirt? Lace jacket and it would be off the charts beautiful! Not that it isn't beautiful now, you did one fabulous job on that dress!

Any chance she might consider wearing this one to the rehearsal dinner since she doesnt want this for her main gown?

That's awesome! If it truly is "just" a practice piece, I think she should put it on for part of the reception!
