I havent read one of your reviews in ages. This is such a cool dress and you seem to like it... with all reasons this is so great... I agree with Chirstas for the Spaniel shoulders , what spaniel shoulder, and for the sleeveless version go for it. I have wrinkles because I laugh too much, should I wear a bag on my head ;-))))

It's March 29th and I just found your review! Where have I been - sleeping? Anyway I love your dress and this pattern. I don't remember ever seeing this pattern before, but it is really cute. The fabric too is perfect. I enjoyed seeing the shower pictures and the little piggies!

I'm WAY late in making a comment on this one. I MEANT to do it as soon as I saw the review because I love this dress, but distractions intervened and then I lost track of what I was doing! Anyway, I really love this on you and love how the fabric works with the pattern. The smaller collar seems much more flattering to me than the big one would have been. It looks absolutely great. This pattern would make a good looking tunic, too. Thank you for another fantastic review and all the photos!

I love your fabric! This is exactly what I WOULDN'T know what to do with such a fabric. Thanks for the inspiration;). I also think you look terrific and styled it just right with your necklace.

Annette, you write the most helpful reviews ever. The information you give us on each made pattern could be compiled for a great sewing instructions' book. Thank you for that. And what an adorable dress you made from such a regular pattern. I would never, ever think that pattern would make that wonderful looking dress. Getting rid of that 80's sash was a perfect decision. Then the fabric looks wonderful on you as well as the beautiful workmanship. You are a sewing diva for sure.

Very nice. This pattern has potential so it is great to see other people trying it. I love the mysterious green colour of your fabric.

This dress looks great on you! I like it so much better than the pattern envelope version. Cute piggies too!

This is a very pretty dress on you! It's really a great style for you, too. You shouldn't hesitate to wear the sleeveless version. There's nothing wrong with your arms, and WHAT Cocker Spaniel shoulders?! Thanks for the wonderful tip on keeping the "v" symmetrical. Those piggies are TOO CUTE!
