I love the fabric and you are so lovely and slim that the horizontal lines look great on you.

I love your pattern placement Kay. This dress has turned out a treat in this fabric - an easy to wear, but very stylish garment.

Hi Kay, very nice dress. Your comment on the ruching was very interesting. I made a similar dress for Shelby and when she didn't have the dress on, the middle ruching sagged a bit and then stretched out and looked fine when she was wearing it. So the pieces were not narrower than the main pieces. I think this makes for a more comfortable dress. Can't wait to see the dress in person!

This dress looks fabulous on you. I like the idea of lengthening it. I wish I had thought of that when I made it.

This dress in this fabric on you is fantastic! I especially like the way you've placed the darker stripe at the sleeve hem, which pulls everything together so beautifully. It looks great, and I'm so happy I have this pattern in my stash. Thanks for the helpful review!

Your dress is lovely, and I found your information about the ruching sections very helpful indeed. Maybe now I'll actually make this one since the pattern's been sitting around in my stash for awhile...!

Your long version looks lovely especially with the horizontal design. Very nice!

This is lovely in the longer length. The ruched midriff is very flattering.

This combination of fabric, rushing and length flour give the dress such a look. I feel you have revived the pattern. Nice, nice, nice... plus I love your sandals. ;-)
