Very professional looking dress. And check out the price of the "starlet" dress - $1800!!! Nice work.

Are there susequent directions to step 8 that have you remove the square of fabric? Sure sounds like a typo, except the depicted pieces are shaded to match the verbiage. Nonetheless, stunning as always.

What a classic. Good job, and you wear it beautifully.

DreinPA, the fabric remnant is to be turned to the inside. It just seemed too fussy and more trouble than it was worth.

Beautiful dress. You always look so glamorous in everything you make. Wish I'd had your sewing skill when I was your age :) Thanks for a great review.

I can tell just by looking at that bodice that it should be in the "advanced" category. Beautifully sewn, too, just beautiful!

Beautiful are so pretty! The fit is just always! Thanks for this review. What sort of fabric will you use for your summer version? This dress will be more useful to me in warmer times. I suspect something with stretch? Any thoughts?

GORGEOUS!! The color, the fit, FAB!

The dress looks great! I just am cutting out a mockup, having fit a muslin. I had to straighten out some of the skirt's pegging so I could sit down in it (athletic thighs). Is it comfortable on you to sit down in? You didn't mention that particular aspect in your review. Thanks and gorgeous!

Fran G., Thanks! For Spring I want a lovely floral print. I'd like for it to have some stretch. I've found that a little lycra is my friend. :) BetsyV, my fabric has stretch so no problem with sitting or walking. Plus I like pencil skirts and sheath dresses to be pegged.

Awesome!Awesome!Awesome! This i one of the patterns on my list. I'm glad you did this review. OMG, the addition of the sweater took this dress to another level. It's such a swank look! I will definitely be making this one.

I will be attending my 50th Reunion in September and am going to try to make this dress for the party. Your review is really helpful and I plan to refer to it a lot. I will probably do a muslin first as my skills are not as accomplished as yours and I want to avoid disaster.
