Barbara, I would love to see this but your pictures are teeny tiny on my screen. Can you make them larger?

Barbara V said...
Thanks for the note MtMartha. I'm working frantically to enlarge the images. Please stand by. I really need some education here. :-)

Ladies, are the images large enough now? I used my highend camera with plenty of pixels amd quality, but don't understand why I cannot generate large images even after resizing each one. I will need to read up on this.

I like the collar a lot and the color of the fabric really suits you. I've been interested in Sewing Workshop for a while and this makes me want to look again. Thanks for the review.

Wonderful result. Thanks for sharing. It looks great on you, especially with the belted waist. BTW, resizing a JPG compresses it and so reduces its size. You might try going with the original size, just to see what happens.

Interesting garment! I like the color, too.

I would love to see this in a larger picture, but the color and general outline looks lovely on you.

The dress looks terrific. That certainly is an interesting pattern. I too would love to see bigger pictures.

Thank you ladies for your kind comments and I have been working on this all day, changing cameras, adjusting the camera image size settings, getting all dressed again, snap, snap, upload, upload, but I continue to get small images on my review. I know it is not this difficult for everyone, but it remains a mystery to me! I shall keep working on it, but for now I need a major break!

It looks lovely and it's nice that the collar is versatile. The fabric looks more like a linen than a jersey -- good to know that a knit will work for the pattern. Glad you solved the photo problem.

Ha, ha, I'm laughing at all your technical difficulties, only because it reminds me so much of myself. Glad to see you finally got it figured out!

This dress looks really cute on you. I like the color on you, too. And may I just say that I am intrigued with the beautiful cabinet you are standing in front of. It looks like the bottom part can be converted; is it a sewing cabinet, and does it hold your machine down there?! I am just curious, because I like beautiful furniture almost as much as beautiful garments :)

What a great looking dress! The color is very flattering on you. Love the asymetric collar. Great job!

What a great dress! I've only seen this pattern made as a tunic worn over pants. It looks like a super comfortable dress that you will love to wear in warm weather. And so much better than the pattern illustrations would suggest!

Beautiful dress and very flattering on you. I've never heard of these patterns before so thank you for the great introduction.

missytexas, the hutch is not converted to hold my sewing machine although that is a great idea; however, it is perfect to hold my interfacings and linings in the lower bins, buttons, zippers, tools & notions in the middle section drawers, books at the back of the table top and finally fabrics in the upper shelves. It is a special piece in my sewing room. Thanks

Barbara, I follow your reviews closely and love your choice of clothes. This one is TOPS!! You look fabulous-chic *and* relaxed, which is a difficult combination to achieve. :-)

Barbara, thanks for resizing the photo - unfortunately I had no advice. The dress is gorgeous! I have this collection of patterns but I haven't sewn this one yet.
