Absolutely beautiful. Love it (both versions; with and without belt) and your review.

Good use of a lovely fabric. I like it better without the obi I think it shows off the print, style of dress and your small waist better Less cluttered.

Although both versions look really good on you, I especially love the sari silk dress - and I think the obi belt is just right for it. Well done!

Your comment re McVoguerick expresses so much that I deem it a public service announcement.

Your adjustments paid off well, this is a very cute dress on you. Laughing about the flashing comment and no one at Vogue sews, which is probably true!
