It is very nice. I am planning to sew it as well. But I am concern, that it would be too wide in the waist. I guess, I can always ajust that.

I think it's fabulous! Wouldn't you know I don't have this issue. Great print!

You look fierce in that dress! I think it has absolute TNT potential. It would look great in a grey wool with a turtleneck under. Lots of possibilities.

Looks great!! Thanks for the review! I actually have a plaid I was thinking of for this and was thinking of doing the side panels on the bias as you suggested :) Any time I see panels like that I immediately think of doing plaid with some sections on the bias.

Cute, it's lovely on you. Too chilly here already to think about sleeveless. Will remember it for next year.

Perfect princess seams. Flattering, fun dress. laughed out loud at the "bird's nest" comment. I ALWAYS make a simple project when I have to stop working on a difficult one. so glad I'm not the only one.

Awesome dress!!

You might have lost the design lines, but it looks great...and when you do it again in a plainer fabric, no one will know it's the same pattern. You were quick off the mark with this one.

My pick for this issue. Gorgeous. Thanks for the tips on the fitting.

Bloomin' gorgeous Cidell! The design lines might be disguised by the print but they sure give a lovely fit. I'm glad you had a successful project so easily.
