I have just finished this dress, and all of the details and hand sewing made this drag so much too! I thought it might just have been me, but I am glad that other reviews have said the same. Looks lovely on you. I am glad you completed it!

Stunning dress and look just a stunning one you. Funny that I had nit noticed the braided trim untill reading your review. I think that this pattern will be staying in the shop. You have have much more patience then I have! Enjoy wearing it.

I agree with the others - this dress looks very cute on you. I love the fabric and your styling with the boots looks fabulous. Sorry to hear you had such a time making the dress, but your hard work paid off. Definately wear it with pride!! You did a great job!

Even though this dress produced a lot of dislike for you, It's turned out beautifully, and it's flatter on you.

I hate when things are such a bother to pull together. It actually looks great though, I love the print.

Oh man, I hate it when something so much work turns out meh! Hopefully when you have forgotten how annoying it was to sew you'll like the dress better. I think it's cute!

I think your finished product is the success story! Love it. Don't like to hear the difficulties, but you won! This is what designers work to earn.

What a beautiful dress! I love the fabric you used, and you would NEVER be able to tell the frustrations you had while sewing it. Thanks so much for your in-depth review!

It is a shame you didn't enjoy the process because the dress looks fabulous. great fabric choice.

It's a cute dress, but sounds like one I wouldn't have much patience for either. Guess this pattern will continue to look pretty in my stash for a while. ;)

Your helpful review might aid the next success story. I think your dress looks lovely and hope the pain of making it fades as you wear it.
