Your version looks so much better than the pattern envelope! Did you alter the sleeves as your look longer (and better)? I didn't like the funny sleeve cap on the pattern.

I really love your dress! I like how you tied it in the back instead of the front. I didn't want this pattern before, but do now that I've seen yours. Your "sleeves" look better, too. Thanks for the review!

It's just gorgeous. I've been waiting for reviews on this one as I've made it and love it. The sleeve is also a drop shoulder on me, I was beginning to thing my shoulders were bizarrely narrow, but I do like it better than the envelope pic anyway. I think this is an amazingly flattering design and I like it better with the tie fastened in the back, too. I think Vogue is getting skimpy with the pattern measurements. There are none on the envelope or the paper. Now that I've made it, I have an idea how I could alter lengths should I ever want to but before I was completely unclear on what would end up where.

Your photo is much more attractive than the VP choice. Gorgeous styling, as usual (yours..not Vogue's) !

Very Nice! I like the way the sleeves fall on you, and how you've used the ties in the back.

What a beautiful dress - it looks so much better in your version than I would have expected based on the pattern envelope. I think I had taken this one off my wish list but I guess it will have to go back on again!

I love this and the fabric is incredible! I have bypassed this pattern because I wasn't sure it would translate from pattern to beautiful dress. I will be getting it! Thanks for the great review and the dress is amazing!!!
