Well, I'm certainly glad you DIDN'T give up on this dress, because it's fabulous! I LOVE that color on you AND the style. This was such a neat review, with the extra links that you provided to the bio and the pattern sites. (I LOVE 2451 and 2925.) I'd say you've created your own "quiet marvel of architecture" here. :o)

I LOVE your dress. I made this dress in the 60's also in a golden yellow. I always felt good in this dress. Hope you do too.

Louella, what a fabulously informative review for your beautiful 60's hot yellow dress. I love that you're so fearless in pursuit of your personal style, and you look smashing. (My very first pattern attempt in the 60's was a knockoff of a Fabiani tent coat, which I adored. So thanks for the memories.) Very lovely, Lily

I went through the list of patterns. Those were the styles that I grew up with. I could just picture each one in linen or light weight wool flannel. So different from today's designers. Absolutely love your dress. The color is great, too.

Good for you, stretching your skills and overcoming the fear of trying bound buttonholes. I love the '60's styles, they are so part of our current trends making this dress so au courant! You now own a Fabiani original. Thanks for the great review. -Lisa

Very nice, and congrats on sticking it out to finish. Reminds of a neon green number I had back in the day.

I'm sorry you're not 100% happy with it, but WOW! This is in the Jackie Kennedy style and it is a beautiful dress! You look fabulous in it!

Ohhh, This dress has long been on my coveted pattern list, and I finally scored a pattern too. Thanks for all the detailed information. I like that you went right for the gusto and made yours in the canary yellow (of course, you also look fabulous in yellow). Thank you so much for all the helpful information on the construction. And the background on Fabiani. I had no idea that he was married to Simonetta (another favorite).

Wow, Louella! What a stunning design and a glorious color! Kudos to you for attempting and completing a couturier pattern. Great stuff! You've ended up with a wonderfully unique dress, have expanded your sewing skills, and have had the experience of working with a couturier pattern. You're a winner all round!
