I made this dress right after the pattern came out. It is a lot of work, but I agree with you, so worth it. I have a pear figure and I think it looks good on me. Though come to think of it, I did take some of the shaping out of the hip area. I was surprised I needed to do that.

Beautiful dress! "Two whole days" you say; for me that would be quick! I can't get over how slow I am. Good review.

Great job on this dress! I agree with the others-your skill status is beyond beginner, even just by completing a pattern like this!

You've done a beautiful job on this. Sort of makes me think of piecing a quilt together! (and I agree on upping your skill level. This pattern seems far beyond what most beginners would attempt!)

Super chic dress, well done. I have this pattern in my stash - your photograph SO useful for a flattie like me - I see I will need to seriously alter the neckline ;-)

Thanks for making up this pattern so quickly. It is a unique dress that you'd only need 1:)
