Thanks for the review. I have the pattern and am waiting to find the right fabric before I make it. Thank you for your comment on the neckline. It seems to be a theme with this pattern.

It looks fabulous! And it looks expensive. Congratulations on your first Vogue pattern. You did a beautiful job.

You look totally fabulous and chic in this dress! It's hard to believe that your fabric is an inexpensive polyester! Looks like a stretch cotton sateen ...love it! The fit is perfect. I would love to give it a try...so, maybe, thanks to your review, I will!! Thanks for youe review!

Go for it, jenleeC! I looked at some of your photos, and I think you're right. Probably not about the 20 years part, though. I have a babyface. Don't let it fool you. ;)

Well your first designer Vogue looks fantastic! Congratulations! I was extra pleased to see this review because not only do I have this pattern but I think you might be close to my body double (just 20 years younger, sigh)!!

Beautiful fit, great fabric, perfect shoes. You look terrific in this dress.

Great dress! The fit looks perfect and I love the details and print! I have the 1183 version in my queue and will likely sew the bodice closed as well. Truthfully, I don't know why the instructions don't say to. Even Kay Unger's version (which retained for over $300 btw!) had that sewn down.

Great dress.

Fabulous! yes, it is screaming for some red Manolo's! You are so right about the front crossover...I'm not comfortable wearing mine for that reason and the tack down looks tacked down. You look incredible in yours!

Love your dress - great job. Look forward to photos of you modeling the dress.

You should definitely try it! And thanks everyone, for the kind words!
