Wow, such a cute dress. You're an inspiration to keep on with UFOs.

Thanks for all your compliments! It really helps when you are trying to motivate yourself back into sewing!

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.

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!!

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

That is really nice. You could be a model with that lovely face of yours. (maybe you are!)

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.

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.

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

That's really cute, I love the retro yet modern look of it!

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

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.

Cute, love the fabric contrast, and an excellent fit! Great job.

That is soooooooooo cute! I love your fabric choice!

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!

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