I am glad you won, you wear it so well! I am about the same size that you sewed this, I have the pattern in my stash, and it might get made after all! I love this about PR -encouragement to sew!

Love the dress! Very very flattering,and so much so I just went out and bought the pattern ( just when my JoAnne's was having the sale too!) I hope to make it up for our vowel renewal this summer ( tho it probably wont be in black!)

Your picture in this beautiful dress has been inspiring me ever since the LBD contest. I have a wedding to go to in late spring and I want to look 1/2 a good as you do in this one.

It turned out beautifully, Annette. It's so becoming on you. You look so sophisticated--and skinny! I love the "country" and "art show" poses, too. Wonderful job and great review.

This is terrific! What a beautiful dress. In fact, I think there is one very similar to this style in BWOF 5/09 because that style really caught my eye.

Very nice. Love that fabric. (For the day look pic, how about flats & a scarf? Or just grab a day-style pocket book. Your dress definitely has flexibility for any type of look.) You did a great job on the dress.

A great pattern for a LBD! I wish I had seen it before I started my LBD LOL! Looking forward to seeing the finished dress :)

That is going to be so cute! I can't wait to see it. Can you believe that sometimes they still don't have lining patterns?
