Oooohhhh, it turned out cute. I need to get a green purse to go with it. Nice work, mom!

Yes, this fabric was a really good choice, with its diamond configuration, for this pretty faux wrap dress. I think you can guarantee both satisfaction as well as a repeat request. Just lovely, Lily

Very pretty! I'm saving this pattern for some fabric that I really love. Your review makes me believe I've chosen the right pattern for the job! Thanks!

You sew quite well with bats in your belfry! ;>) The dress turned out great and I'm sure Janet will love it!

Like JuliaS, I keep pulling this pattern from stash and thinking. I've always loved the look of DVF dresses thru the ages, but can't manage to live with wra styles. This certainly fills the bill and makes up beautifully. My hat is off to you for such great success at a distance from the recipients. You sew beautifully and your DD and DIL are lucky ladies.

This is so lovely! I have this pattern sitting in my stash and keep pulling it out to look at it; hopefully I will have good results like you.

Oooo, your daughter will love this! I really like the triangular design of the print. Gee, I wonder what she meant by that little comment, "Can never have too many wrap dresses"? :O) You'd better hurry up and get those dressforms.

Since Janet chose the fabric, I think you're in pretty safe territory. The style is classic, so what's not to like? Glad you fought off the marauding wildlife and got to use your machines this weekend. The results are excellent.
