I love your dress and think it looks great on you (so I guess I love sack dresses, LOL). Anyhow, I went back to look at your McCalls dress...gorgeous as well!

Thanks for the cowl information. I liked this dress but wasn't sure how it would do. It helps so much to have this info!

Nice dress in spite of all the fitting issues. Great ideas and thanks for sharing your methods for fixing the fit better.

Looks great on you though, i wouldn't have guessed all the problems with the sticks and boning in your finished version

Please don't call me a troll but I don't like this dress on you. Clever fix with the cowl but you shouldn't have to fix things like that. I love all your other dresses but I have to be honest here - this one just doesn't work. Great review as always.

Very cute dress. Love the cowl. Great way to get it under control with the boning. Fun fabric. As usual I enjoyed your review very much.

A cute dress. You've done well to get that cowl under control.

Oh cute! Great pattern. This style looks good on so many people and is very popular now, and looks terrific on you! Great work.

Nice dress. The snap for the cowl is a wonderful idea.

Groovy--love the way you tamed the cowl with the boning/snap/stay.
