Simple, comfortable, beautiful, what else could you ask for. I like very much on you. Perfect match with the necklace.

Sorry about posting the same comment twice. I am a bit of a klutz sometimes with computers

I just came across this, when I was reviewing Burda 7696, which is the same dress. Someone on this review wrote that it had been reviewed here. Kay, your outfit looks stunning. I am really looking forward to making this dress, and will be taking your comments on board.

Thanks for the review Kay. I made this dress straight and had the same issues you did. I will try again because it is very flattering.

I made this same dress this week, Kay and experienced the same issues you did--the upper chest and back are really too long (that's what I get for not making a muslin....) Your version is so pretty and that print is perfect!

Kay, your dress is lovely. The print works well with the style. I have been thinking about sewing this dress and now really want to get to it soon! You look great in it.

This looks so great on you. I love the buckle. Hmm, I wonder if I have a buckle in my stash??

Gorgeous Kay, truly gorgeous. A lovely summer ensemble with exquisitely executed workmanship.

I love it, no one would ever know it can be made in a matter of hours. And you know if Burda say it has a plunging neckline they aren't kidding!

What a nice outfit with the jacket! Very flattering dress, love the print and the buckle.

What a PERFECT summer dress. I love the neutrals in the print, and that linen jacket is really getting some mileage, it goes with so many things. Another beautiful outfit. :o)

great review I love the fabric and you look so terrific in it!!

I love the whole ensemble. The colors in the print are neutral and interesting at the same time. It's a very classy but not at all boring look.

Summer has arrived with your dress; it's perfect for the season. And, of course, it's perfectly sewn per usual.

What a great dress! Sounds like it was quick and easy, and it looks so good.

Very nice, Kay. That looks gorgeous. I like that it is so understated and still sexy. Love the buckle.

Really cute dress, Kay! Your jacket looks perfect with it. The decorative belt buckle looks very nice with the fabric.
