Gosh you're clever. I like the reversible idea.

So impressed with your dress--the fit, the construction, the reversibility!! Most importantly, it looks lovely on you.

I can't believe you made this reversible, great job.

wow-that is so nice. It helps that your figure is near perfect, but even if it wasn't so cute, the dress would be darling anyway. I am glad I saw this review as I would like to take another shot at Colette Patterns.

I love that this is reversible! The print charmeuse is gorgeous. You are brave for tackling bias AND charmeuse AND reversible in the same garment, and it really paid off.

Sleek and stylish dress, Becca! Thanks for providing your detailed alterations.

Thanks all of you for your lovely comments! Mary Nanna, how scary the bias is seems to depend on the fabric. The washed silk is grabby and stable so it was much easier to work with than the charmeuse.

This dress has always scared me because of all the bias - but yours has come up beautifully so now I'm tempted..

Beautiful! I love the fabric combination you chose. I hope you wear it all the time! It looks great.

Oddly, I was sure I posted the first comment. But no matter! Love the dress and the colour. Thanks to you, I'm seriously considering this patter and CP in general despite the FBA-friendly reputation (not my shape). I truly love bias dresses and this one is seems work-appropriate too!

This is a much better picture than what is on the pattern. Beautiful!
