Another 5 star vote for your dress! As to CC patterns, I've ignored them too. I wish she would NOT use those dumb drawings! But from what I've heard, her patterns are excellent, and designed to fit real women who are not 20-year-old stick figures. Just bought a bunch of them and can't wait to get this one made!

Thanks for the review. A lovely dress for a hot summer's day! We have about three of those here in Seattle, but when they come, I really would like to have one of these!

I've had this pattern for a while but was afraid to try it. Now, after seeing yours, I will give this one a try! This looks wonderful and is very flattering on you!

I love it! Once again, the drawing does a disservice to the pattern. Did you put in the darts?

Send me that dress and no one gets hurt!!! Why are you laughing??? I want that dress---the fabric is gorgeous, and I know if it looks that fabulous on you, it would look great on me. OK, I have the pattern, but had no idea it could look that good! Stop laughing---I am PMing you my address!
