Just another piece of fabulousness. You are entering this in the One-fabric, Knit contest right? Laura, this is an awesome looking dress on you.

Fabulous dress--perfect combination of fabric and pattern.
7/15/08 9:58 AM
Gorgeous, and soo sexy!
7/15/08 10:04 AM
I love it! You did a great job. I've never thought of using bra cups before, but will definitely remember that for future garments. Thanks for the stellar review!

Beautiful and so summery. You look like those elegant woman walking on La Croisette in Cannes. For a none perfect match in the back, I think it is very nicely done. Gorgeous dress for a gorgeous woman. You review is excellent and very informative. Bravo !
7/15/08 10:51 AM
VaVoom! You look amazing!
7/15/08 10:53 AM
Wonderful use of a print. It looks great on you.

Stunning dress and a great way of using the panel print. The dress in the magazine looks like a simple, albeit nice beach dress but yours takes the pattern to a whole new level.

Yowsa! Super dress! I'm an addict to silk jersey also and I love your fabric placement. Thanks for all the photos and tips!
7/15/08 11:13 AM
I want to come back with your sewing skills and that knock out figure. Geesh. You amaze me.
7/15/08 11:14 AM
OMG, this fabric was just begging to be made into this dress, wasn't it!!! It's to die for! (And I've been wondering where you've been!) :)
7/15/08 11:56 AM
Wow - this looks so fabulous. Your review is full of information too. Thank you.
7/15/08 12:40 PM
The dress is spectacular! Thanks for a very informative review as well.
7/15/08 12:43 PM
Great job, as always!
7/15/08 1:37 PM
Gorgeous dress, your fabric is so wonderful for this pattern.
7/15/08 1:54 PM
This is a knockout dress on you, as usual. I was looking at that dress yesterday and thought "no way" because of the no-bra aspect. But leave it to you, BRA CUPS inserted! AND your fabric is amazing. You served the fabric perfectly. Envious here!
7/15/08 2:04 PM
Wow! Lovely fabric, great construction and you look ready to dance all night in that dress!
7/15/08 2:11 PM
Fabulous dress! I'm glad to see you are sewing again. I miss your reviews.
7/15/08 2:13 PM
You were born to wear this alluring beauty of a dress! And your placement of the fabric's motifs and designs is exquisite. Your review, as always, is both informative and encouraging. Very, very lovely, Lily
7/15/08 2:24 PM
The fabric spoke and you listened. What an awesome dress. I have sewing envy!
7/15/08 2:37 PM
I love this dress and it looks fabulous on you. Where did you get the fabric?
7/15/08 2:46 PM
Wow... This is gorgeous!
7/15/08 3:01 PM
I can only repeat what veryone else has said. This is great!
7/15/08 3:22 PM
Gorgeous dress, you have really made perfect use of the beautiful print on the fabric.
7/15/08 3:23 PM
So pretty and elegant! Thank you for such a helpful review too!
7/15/08 3:52 PM
Absolutely gorgeous - and the dress is as well !!!!!!!!
7/15/08 6:37 PM
Beautiful dress and gorgeous fabric.
7/15/08 7:38 PM
The dress is tooo much! Love the tear drop accent! Watch out contest participants, this is a tough act to follow!
7/15/08 8:38 PM
It's a Knockout !!!!! Totally fabulous !!!!!
7/15/08 8:41 PM
Pure perfection! :o) Made so wearer-friendly, too, with the addition of the bra cups.
7/15/08 8:43 PM
Wow, so Laura Lo-vely! Great fabric design placement! Very nice review! The earrings are a perfect match!
7/15/08 9:08 PM
I am so happy to see you made this dress! I saw it in BWOF and fell in love; it is something I would have sewn when I was younger. You rock it!
7/15/08 9:27 PM
I don't know which is better, your excellent sewing talent or that knockout figure. What a perfect way to make this dress even more elegant by the fabric you chose.
7/15/08 10:17 PM
Good to see you back and sewing - absolutely TOL look on you.
7/16/08 1:08 AM
Fabulous drss; you've got a GORGEOUS figure! I follow all of your sewing & read your blog. You're innovative & very detailed in your work. I thank God for the internet so we can share & kind of get to know each other.
7/16/08 4:19 AM
OOOOooooLaLa! I love silk jersey too. It is hard to find though. I'll have to do a little search on e-bay myself! Beautiful dress.
7/16/08 9:41 AM
What everybody else said! Perfection.
7/16/08 10:09 AM
Except for "hotty hot hot!", I'm speechless :)
7/16/08 11:29 AM
beautiful - you and the dress!
7/16/08 5:21 PM
What a beauty! Thanks so much for the links to such valuable tips and resources. Dance the night away!

That is such a HOT dress!!!
7/16/08 11:39 PM
OMG! This dress is sizzling HOT!
7/17/08 7:29 PM
Thanks for the bra cup illustration. Still not sure a woman my age could pull it off, but you remain an inspiration!
7/18/08 1:51 PM
Drop dead gorgeous dress! I pity any woman that walks into a room together with you when you wear this one! She doesn't stand a chance. Beautiful.
7/22/08 4:55 PM
That dress looks completely fabulous on you. Fantastic job! The beautiful fabric really works!
7/25/08 9:04 PM
Such a fantastic dress... The pattern is so simple, but your choice of fabric and inspired use of the print makes this dress truly stand out. Love, love the way you used this fabulous fabric to its best advantage. (of course now I want to get some silk jersey!)
7/30/08 4:08 AM
Wow, this is absolutely gorgeous - I think I know the ebay store you mean, is it Voyage? I've seen their silk panels and wasn't sure what to make with them, but this is ideal. Thanks for the bra cup tip too, great idea.
