Love your dress! It looks fantastic. The trim and running embroidery stitch are great touches. I was not inspired by the pattern until I saw your version. Now I think I must have it.

Very cute dress! Your vintage ribbon and decorative stitching raise the dress to the next level.

cute dress and a wonderful silhouette on you. I like the way you always combine multiple photos into one screen. Great review.

Very pretty, and impressively tailored. You seem to be remarkably thorough and meticulous for a slapdash sewist!

You have done a great job with the fit and choice of fabric. Really nice. It is a pattern I might not do after a first glance at the pattern, but with your photo and review I am going to give it a try! Thank You!

great review, looks great. thanks for all the info. I have this pattern and keep thinking about it, but the center pleat puts me off - maybe I will eliminate it entirely.

Awesome review! I just started this project in black linen last night. So far so good. I agree with you about the shoulder straps as I also prefer a little more coverage. I cut this out on 8/10 and started sewing on 8/11. I expect to finish tonight. Again, awesome review! Thanks!
