Appreciate your honest forthright review. Sorry it didn't work out as you planned.

I'm sorry you don't like the bias cut of the dress, I love the asymetrical hem you made, and the contrasting fabrics make the dress look runway stylish, I think it's a great look on you!

Thanks for the review. I think you made your version much more interesting and stylish than the drawings on the envelope would suggest. I wouldn't have guessed it was all bias either.

Thanks for the review-this is an interesting pattern, and your dress is very runway. I like it, especially with a belt.

I don't know why, but this dress interested me, so I spent extra time looking over all the reviews. I think yours is very interesting and works really well on you. I don't see it as medieval as much as Viking! But again, it looks beautiful on you. I love your changes. I agree, the bodice looks great on grain rather than bias. Your boots are great and add a lot to this look. I think you should give it a chance this winter - and I am guessing others will like it as well. (btw - I can't find the pattern at the site - I think McCall's pullled it?)

Yes, it's OOP, it's quite old, I've had it in my stash for a few years at least

I love the colorblock, too bad you don't like it, visually it's really cool! Love your shoes (in both reviews, in fact)

Your rendition of the dress is interesting and eye-catching. I examined it closely and decided you did something here that really works. The fabric combination works wonderfully together and it is very flattering on you. I like it!

@fourkid: I added a link to the pattern pic. You're right though, the dress is totally Viking!
