Nice dress with a dream fit! It really shows off your great figure.

Great job with the fitting! I made a dress similar to this, which I have never worn because of the lining popping out at the neck and the high neckline. I will have to try your tip to take it out at the shoulders!

Wow, it fits you so well! You would never know what you went through to get it right. I am always impressed with a great fit. That is the hardestpart of sewing, I think.

I love your sleeveless version of this dress. It looks great on you and fits you so well. Thanks for the informative review.

Very nice, and you can either look schoolgirlish or sophisticated (when you wear it sleeveless)

You've got the fit down perfectly! Nice that it's an all-season piece. Your comments re: making it sleeveless and understitching the lining were very helpful. edited to add: your bio photo just changed while I was writing this!

I love your new dress. The contrast band really creates interest up toward your face. It doesn't look like a potato sack to me but really cute with the subtle contrast of the solid and plaid.

What a great dress! Your fabric choice is really good and the shape of this dress really shows off your cute shape.

Love your dress! Nice to "see" another reviewer from MD.

Wow, what an adorable dress. When I read your review, I was surprised that you had fitting problems--it appears to fit like a glove. Great job!!

The dress looks great on you. Since you mention projects in bags, I have to mention that a friend who keeps projects in paper bags refers to them as "PIGs" Projects in Grocery bags.
