Your version is so much cuter than I pictured from the BWOF photo! Now I wish I was tall. Not for the first time.

Love that linen print - you're FINE already with the placement - and it looks so good on you! Congrats on the first dress in a decade!

Wow, first dress in a decade, and a fine looking one at that! It's very flattering, and I particularly like your placement of the print on the bodice.

Very pretty, and the colors are luscious. I especially like the way you've centered the motif in the front. I think the front skirt looks fine.

Your dress looks great. Thanks for the review. I assumed it was a knit, but I see you did it in linen. I will have to try this one out. -Nneka

I wasn't impressed with the dress in the magazine, but I love your garden party version!! I'm a borderline "tall", too, so the review was really helpful.

Oh, I *Love* it -- the fabric, the way you used the print -- the soft-summery look -- thanks so much for this review.

You look great in this lovely dress. YOur placement of the flowers are perfect and that point you made about the pleats located in the CF and CB makes sense!

I really like this! It look great on. Great marriage of pattern and fabric, too.

The print placements looks just fine to me. Looks like a well drafted pattern -- I especially like the absence of pleats on the sides. Good choice for your first dress in 10 years.

Very pretty dress! I love your interpretation of the original design--you translated it nicely to a summer dress. It looks great on you!

Such a pretty dress, and the fabric is just gorgeous! I think you did a fine job with the placement of the print - it doesn't look "off" to me, just pretty! :)

Lovely looking dress! I bet it is very cool and comfortable to wear.

I like it! And I don't think the placement of the flowers on the front skirt is a problem. The location of the pleats is slimming.
