Great looking dress! I agree with a trial run in muslin or tissue fitting for the best results. Pattern sizing is usually off and extremely generous in my experience. I have this pattern in my stash and can't wait to sew it. Thanks for your review and tips; I'll definitely refer to them for this pattern and most likely for others.

Thank you for the review! I have this pattern and fabric for it in my stash! If the current heat wave continues, I'll get it sewn in the next 2 weeks! Very helpful!

Beautiful dress! I agree with the statement concerning the annoying info on sizing. The dress is definitely designed to be a fitted most Kay Unger's designs are. Why so much ease? Well, you followed your intuition and have a beautiful result.

Love that! The fabric choice is top notch! I have a Kay Unger pattern that I've had for some time. You're making me want to bring it forward. Nice work!

I've admired this fabric several times and it looks great on you! Very nice dress! (I agree, the sizing is annoying! My very first dress looked like a trash bag because it was so big based on the envelope! I'm glad I know better now.)

Great fit and I love your fabric choice! Thanks for the fit tips, I appreciate it!

Thanks ladies! @ Lenora~ No, I didn't, my pattern ranged from size 8-16.

I find that sizing discrepancy annoying. I hope you didn't have to buy another envelope just to get the 12. Lovely dress and perfect fit!
