I've loved this style and looked for it for years. Only when I got home did I realize it was a petite. Bummer! I will go with the hint of making it in muslin first. But at the rate I sew, I may be wearing a white muslin dress when the occasion arrives.

Very pretty dress--you definitely made it work! I actually have that same fabric. I'm glad to see it sews up so nicely.

I love this fabric and your dress shows it off beautifully. I especially like the pattern placement, the result is very flattering.

So pretty. I like this very interesting fabric - surface texture and print and colors. Then you made a well-fitted and well-made dress. Doesn't get better than this!

You're not the only one!!! I bought this and was quite annoyed to realize it was a petite once I got home! I haven't had a chance to make it yet. Your's looks fantastic!

I experienced the same dart/skirt connection problem when I made a Burda shift dress. But I didn't have the skills back them to figure out how to fix it! Thanks for the review and the pointers!

What a fabulous fit, fabric, and fashion that won't date! Thanks for your review with pictures.

I love this on you. The fabric is terrific and the shape/style very flattering. I'm glad you didn't do the sleeves.

This is a beautiful dress on you. Good for you for not giving up when finding out you had a petite pattern. I think you look better than that skinny model on the envelope.

You really look fabulous, and so slim! I would have never guessed that you made it a bigger size on the bottom. You did a great job on the fit, and thanks for the heads up about the darts.
