Great dress. You look cool and classy in this one. Very flattering. I love your tips on the blog for this. Should make this a much easier sew.

Love that bold print, perfect for this breezy summery dress. And your shoes are just too cute.

Love the fabric you chose for this, and the contrast bands. It looks great! Sigrid, thanks so much for your alternate method of doing the front bands! I think I will do mine that way when the time comes.

Your dress is gorgeous and you found the perfect shoes to go with it. The print is very eye-catching: I love the large yet subtle numerals.

I want you to know I dreamt about this dress last night and I know the perfect fabric. Thanks for putting together such a great tutorial!

Oh, Sigrid, you really outdid yourself on this one. This is SO flattering, and I love that print. The dress looks rather "blah" in the magazine picture, but both yours and Kay's have turned out BEAUTIFULLY! I haven't seen the other reviews yet, but this dress seems to be becoming a favorite for lots of us. :o)

The pictures in the magazine were beyond useless in showing what a great dress this is. Sigrid, thanks for the tip on the top construction - I'll see how I make out with the BWOF instructions, but yours make more sense to me already.

Such a wonderful dress. Great job.

You and I agree perfectly on prints and patterns! Love your version - and I edited my review to note I too had raised the neck by 3cm - the perfect amount.

Another fantastic version of this dress- I might just have to bite the bullet, if I can only find away around that v neck (just not good on me :-()

I love that bold fabric - this dress seems perfect for it and it looks terrific!

Very cute! All of the versions of this dress that have been posted here have been much nicer than the one in the magazine--yours is no exception.
