The pattern and fabric are perfect for this dress. Did you raise the neckline? The pattern shows a plunging neckline.

I love this pattern too, for the same reasons as you stated. I hope that I will make it soon, and when I do I'll definitely reread your helpful review. Looks awesome on you too!

Beautiful dress. Very similar to McCalls 6163, which is now OOP. Nice to know there is an alternative pattern available.

Nice pattern review. It's very flattering and your fabric choice is spot on. I am sure you will get a lot of wear out of this dress!

I would have missed this one. Your dress is lovely. I have to grab this one. I like the one piece bodice too.

Great dress! Looks amazing on you (as usual) and the fabric from Mood is perfect for this style. Also, congrats on PR #100! Keep on sewing!

Your dress is so pretty! Thanks for the tip on underlining the bodice. This one is in my pattern stash and I'm encouraged here to choose it soon!

This is adorable on you! Love the fabric. I see another PR'er pegged this as M6163. I have it and it's one of my favorites. Thanks for the reminder!

Beautiful dress! Love your fabric choice. Looks like I'm adding another fake wrap dress pattern to my stash.

This pattern looks almost identical to McCall's 6163, which has quite a few reviews, and I already own. Yippy. I have noticed this before with "See & Sew" ... often they are missing one or two options, in this case long sleeves. Anyway, your version is lovely. I just love the fabric, and as always, great fit and sewing skill!

Great dress. I rather like the raglan sleeves. Lovely photos on your blog.

Looks wonderful on you! The fit is superb and I love your neckline finish. You and Julie both look stunning! I think there is something so special about wearing a custom creation

This is my favorite of your knit dresses. Love the raglan sleeves and especially your neckline finishing method. Now I'm off to the Mood website before this beach camo fabric runs out!

I think this is just fantastic and wonderful with your fabric choice!

Congratulations on your 100th review! The big 3 pattern companies need to send you a commission check, without fail I end up buying the patterns after reading your reviews and seeing your wonderful interpretations. This pattern wasn't even on my radar!

Just lovely on you! Love the fabric! Headed out to buy the pattern. I will have to use the longer sleeves because of my age but am pleased that they are an option. Thanks for the lining tips. Do you think this would still be pretty if I lengthen it just a couple of inches? (Old knees, you know. Sigh.)
