Wow, very thorough and helpful review! The dress looks great, but your review convinced me I'm not ready for a pattern this complicated, even with a class. I'm sorry I can't figure out how to send private emails--would you mind telling me where you got your industrial strength bra? We're similar sizes and I need one!

Thanks for an excellent review - you look wonderful in your dress! I too have signed up for the class and am anxiously waiting for time to devote to it. Thanks also for letting us see how wonderful this looks in a knit - I love the comfort of knit dresses, and your thoughtful tips for changing the fabric type will certainly come in handy!

It looks more chic the way you did than on the pattern.

Loved reading your review-the fluffy and industrial strength parts cracked me up! I never would had thought that that would fit on a lady that is 'fluffy' like you and me! It is very flattering. You have given me the courage to try a dress.

Your dress turned out great, and even better, I have the pattern in my stash. You look really good in it. I'm sure you're smiling on the inside. ;D

I also signed up for the class w/Susan. Thanks for reviewing this dress. Now I feel like I will have success with the pattern. Usually the dresses are too short so I'll be sure to check the length before cutting my dress. Your dress is flattering.

Riesie, I signed up for the class but was looking sideways at the pattern, but now that you've made such a lovely dress I feel confident to go ahead with it. This is not the first time I've followed you and ended up with a great pattern and I'm sure the results will be the same this time. Enjoy wearing your pretty dress!

Riesie, this is an awesome dress, and looks terrific on you!

Yes, I omitted the zipper. I cut it with a back seam, just in case, but there was plenty of ease/stretch so I didn't bother with the zipper. Thanks for kind remarks, everybody.

Love the color, and it looks like you got a fantastic fit. Very flattering, I agree. I forget that woven patterns can often work well in knits -- I need to look more closely at this one. ETA: Did you leave out the zipper?
