This looks VERY cute on you! I finally had gotten to the point where I was happy with my patterns and pattern magazines, and now you make me want ANOTHER pattern magazine. You didn't even have to twist my arm or nuthin'! I love your new dress. Those little boys of yours are going to be so proud to show off their very stylish mom!

Great dress, and I'm very jealous of your fabric.

Great tunic! I like everything about it and it looks great on you. I sometimes buy LMB but I don't have this issue :-(

Great work! I subscribe to LMB so I recognised it immediately and thought, oh good, someone else sews LMB so I can see how these things look on real people. It looks great on you!

I LOVE this! In fact, I see you're making an entire new wardrobe, from the thumbnails in the Review Gallery. :o) I recently ordered the plus version of the magazine, and it has some really cute things in it. I thought the same thing when I saw the tracing pages ... I think I can actually FOLLOW THE LINES (and FIND the lines). :o) Beautiful job!

Super cute--and thanks for the info on LMB sizing. I've got a 3-pack arriving any day now. Your top came out perfect--definitely NOT your MIL's tunic.

The textured fabric adds such pizzazz to the pattern I'm glad you caved and bought it. Very nice in the tunic length.

Actually, that helps a lot, squirrelly! I *used* to be a 42 but have graduated to a 44 right now, so the 46 should be the ticket. So...I think this pattern runs a bit small (it even looks tight on Miss Beanpole's arms in the mag) and yes, I have some extra fluff. I'm tempted to try a 46 plus just for comparison.

EveS - I'm pretty much a standard Burda 42 (no alterations needed). If I go just by LMB's size chart, I should be a 46, but I tried this for my first LMB pattern and it was too large for me, so since that I always do a 44 and that fits me pretty well. That being said, I think all my LMB projects have been knits, where a cm here or there wouldn't matter much... Does this help at all?

Squirrellypoo, do you find their waist msmts are smaller than Burdas - even if you size up?...I'm trying to decipher their msmt charts and it looks like they are. Trying to avoid the possibility that it's ME! lol.

Fantastic dress! It was well worth the alterations, and thanks for the comparative analysis with the other patterns of similar styles! (oh, and I go up one size from my Burda size for LMB, too)
