Pretty dress, congrats on your outfit & new size. So, does this actually have an "inner spandex core"? And is that basically a stretch lining?

Va Va Va VOOM!!! You look FABULOUS Squirrely....maybe you should change your name to "Minxy-poo." That is a terrific new dress for your terrific new bod! You are an inspiration...Thanks.

You look great in your new dress. Nice touch with the gloves. Forty six pounds, I'll bet that was tough. I admire you.

I loved your review...your frankness and unbiased opinion hit home as I get frustrated with the jumping around on the instructions. Your dress is sensational and the guys will go va va va voom when you enter the room! I like the summer dress idea. I'll be watching for a new review when you do it. Great review!

Aww, thanks so much for the compliments (both on the dress and me)! I didn't want it to look like advertising, but since people have asked, I used to lose all that weight. It's a free healthy eating and exercise tracking site and I can't recommend it highly enough.

Wonderful job on your dress. Even before I read your engrossing review, I noticed the excellent job you did matching the plaid. Excellent tip about re-working and re-copying the instructions, too.

A fantastic effort! The dress looks fabulous, you look fabulous, and I wondered if anyone would actually ever make this pattern. I like the flirty skirt bottom version of the pattern as well (View C). A great review, thanks.
