I am looking forward to the next 12. This looks great and there will be another summer next year.

What a wonderful dress! The color looks amazing on you. It's a quick sew, eh? I would never have guessed. It looks fantastic.

I LOVE the gorgeous cut of the bodice/neckline/shoulders on you! You should make LOTS of these, or at LEAST one more. :o) IS IT DONE YET?? BRAVO!

First of all I'm so happy to see your head and pretty smile in this review! And think your dress is very cute. I love the style and snappy green color. Super work as always.

Lovely dress! And speedy too...I'm jealous because it takes a whole month for my patterns to arrive by mail! I could buy locally but at $32 a pop for Vogue designers I have to be pretty desperate!

Nice job on this great dress, and I love the color! I suppose you can chalk up the fabrication choice and how it didn't sew up as well as you hoped to a great learning experience that is still quite cute and wearable!

Thanks, everyone, for the really nice comments! Barb, I'm really not that quick. I made this dress over the weekend and just now got around to reviewing it!

I've always been tempted by this pattern. It's a good one for you with the empire waistline and bodice detail. I'm impressed that you whipped out another garment in a day!

Adorable! This style really suits you and the color is wonderful.

I agree with Heather's lovely post!!! Your dress is eyecatching on you --as a picture of loveliness. I love the fabric, style, color and fit of this project. Sorry you didn't have it to wear during this terribly hot summer. I think you mentioned that you fully lined the top on your dress, and that makes such a professionl look as well. It seems like you're on a roll by making on of these darling green garments each and every day. LOL, you are a speed demon!!! Thanks for the review.

This is darling! I love the color! Feel your pain with the heat...and now fires! Stay sure look cool in this dress...

oh my!!! you sewed this so quick since your pattern shopping, this is a wonderful color on you. I like the side seam pockets, pleats and lined bodice. Very nice dress Christas...

It's easy to overlook the designs on the pattern envelopes, but not your eyecatchingly gorgeous dress! I like this enticing color on you, and as always your smile can brighten anybody's day. :-)

Great! Now I have to add another pattern to my wishlist. Your dress is beautiful and looks wonderful on you.
