Wow that is a great looking dress and beautifully made! I love the lined sleeve. I made this dress and like mine but it looks like my dog chewed it on the inside...

You are so very talented! I love this pattern, and you chose a fabric that flatters your lovely complexion. Excellent work, as always!

Gorgeous dress! Thanks for the tip about self-lining cap sleeves, my top stitching never looks great on cap sleeves so I will definitely try this. All the close ups were very helpful too.

Very pretty dress, you always make such a lovely job of finishing the inside of your garments.

Your reviews always provide such great ideas to try, like self-lining the sleeves. And, being a slave to my serger, I would not have thought of French seams for a knit; but what a lovely effect. The dress looks lovely on you. Thanks for a very helpful review.

Very lovely dress! The inside looks great too. I really like your idea to self-line the cap sleeves. :)

I have this pattern in my stash and the perfect fabric for it. Even with all the reviews, yours is the first one to convince me to make it! Yours looks awesome!

What a great review! Thank you so much. The pictures helped this beginning sewer see what the garment should look like. Both dress and review are very well constructed. :)
