Pretty dress. I have that pattern in my stash but haven't yet sewn it. Guess I'll have to soon... everyone else looks great in it.

aww, thanks for all the compliments! I had a great birthday, and my boyfriend redeemed himself by finally gettiing me a dressmaker's dummy, which I've been wanting for months. She's now properly padded out to match, with ace bandages keeping her all together and a pink ribbon to mark my lower waist. So she's looking a bit like a gunshot victim with a pink bow!

Very cute. Love your fabric ( I made one with short sleeves out of almost identical fabric) You have excellent taste. LOL This is one of those dresses that just looks so different on the body than the hanger. Nice that BF noticed that fact. ;)

What anice first review. Your dress looks gorgeous and with your review in mind I may just get this pattern - don't wear dresses that often but if I can look half as good as you do then I am on the winning side!! Been swayed by you r reference to feeling as easy as wearing a T shirt.Love your fabric

Good Job!! You should know that you do not trust men to notice what is in front of their eyes, even if it is there for a week.

Wonderful dress! I love that you got the fabric for a 1 a looks great on you. Good tip about the sleeves - I must have gorilla arms as well, then, because I'd have to alter them and their length.
