This looks wonderful. It has the appearance of being such a complex pattern, so you were very adventurous to make the changes - I love the way the fabric choices (both your versions) together with the reduction in volume make it work as daywear. I love the cut of this design when I studied the line drawings, but the peachy formal wear look is so off-putting! I think now I am working out some ways I could make up this pattern, so thank you. By the way, I think 'eyelet' and 'broderie anglaise' are interchangeable terms for a fabric or trim that features cutwork or eyelets, it's just one of those American/British English language things. I wonder if the French say 'English Embroidery'?

So pretty on you! I agree with the commenter below that your fabric choice make this much more attractive and flattering than the version on the pattern envelope.

Your version would sell this pattern better. Great looking dress.

I like both of your versions better than the fabric illustration...not that the pattern's version is not pretty. However yours seem more practical and more wearable. Great job on these!

I've admired this pattern for a while. Informative to see a casual take on it.

I never liked this pattern before, but your changes - the contrasting fabrics and elimination of the pouf at the hem - have made a wearable and very fun dress!

Thank you for reviewing this pattern. Looking at the pattern drawing and model picture it didn't attract me, but on you it is lovely. Great idea to use different fabrics.

I have only just caught up with this review but wanted to add my comments which are much the same as everyone else's. I love it on you. I would never have chosen to make this from the Vogue pattern envelope but your version is so cool looking (in both senses of the word). I want one just like it.

I am built like you and your review "made me do it!" I used a linen as well and only lined the bodice and front panel. It is flattering and very unusual, and thanks for the ideas.
