Lovely! Great fabric choice. I like how the paisleys mirror each other on the bodice back, and, of coarsen the border at the bottom.

Absolutely gorgeous - I don't think you have ever reviewed anything that I haven't just loved - and this is sure one of them. So elegant and just right for summer

I absolutely love it! The fabric is fun and beautiful. I like the idea of adding a self-fabric sash - it looks more polished that way. You look gorgeous!

It looks beautiful on you. Such a great fabric for a maxi dress. You did such a great job with the border print.

A great decision to turn this into a maxi! The print is perfect and I love the exposed neck facing.

Fabulous! Turning the top into a dress is a great idea, and it works well in that fabric. I love paisley, too.

You look fabulous and great job on matching the print. I have never thought of border prints for myself, but after seeing this creation I need to go shopping! :-)

Your garments always look better than the ones on the pattern envelope. Bravo again, and the color is great on you, too.

Very Impressed with the conversion to a dress, fabric suits the style so well.Congratulations on a beautiful result. Would it be possible to add sleeves do you think? I have 2 gorgeous border prints but sleeveless is not so good on me these days.

Barbara V said...
Thank you, thank you everyone for the lovely comments! sewpelican, I think absolutely, one could add sleeves. Just look for a pattern with a sleeve style that you like; then incorporate the sleeve opening onto this pattern and you're all set to add sleeves.

OK, now I want a maxi dress. Your use of the paisley border print makes this dress.

Wow! This is such a great dress! I love your use of a large border print. The exposed bias binding is such a nice touch, and the fit looks great (good call removing the extra gathers). Stunning dress
