I have to make this dress! I made a muslin, but didn't go any further. I like it with the accent binding. I like everything about this on you. Oh, matte jersey absolutely will stretch if hung. Roll it up and it will store wonderfully.

Excellent dress, nice w/ your neckline adjustment. Retro 70's without looking like something you dug up from the back of the closet. I don't have this pattern, but the drawing looks to have slightly high waist so it doesn't necessarily mean you are long waisted.

LOvely Lovely dress!

Thanks everyone! I am so glad I got in to sewing again and there's a community to get help from. I am again, seriously, blushing. Funny how I used to be so embarassed to wear clothes I made.

Personally, I think you would make a burlap bag look good, but that dress makes you shine!
lmg said... (4/24/07 10:14 PM) Reply
That is one gorgeous dress! As you said, conservative yet attractive. I have the pattern all traced out and adjusted. Thanks for the tips on the low neckline!

You ARE the Dancing Queen- looks fab on you!
beangirl said... (4/24/07 5:51 PM) Reply
Your $20 dress is waaaaaay cooler than any ol' diva's. And yes, I think that matte jersey should be stored flat (for $.02).

Oh that turned out so beautiful!

That dress is beautiful on you and Beyonce would probably be hating you. It really looks great.
Christina Sonja said... (4/24/07 12:25 PM) Reply
This looks so great on you! I had the same issue with the scandalous neckline and never finished my garment. You have inspired me to give it another go.
kkkkaty said... (4/24/07 12:21 PM) Reply
wowser is right, gorgeous! BTW, Beyonce's got nothing on you
Nancywin said... (4/24/07 11:43 AM) Reply
I love, love, love this dress on you. I will definitely have to take a second look at getting this pattern. You did a great job.
ryankckids said... (4/24/07 11:39 AM) Reply
OK - you sold me. I **love** the waist. Dang. I was on a pattern moratorium (and fabric, and notions...bwa haa haa). Seriously - beautiful work and helpful info about the sizing. Also inspiring since my 2 forays into HP patterns have been pretty awful.
