WOW! Sensational dress with exceptional fit and love the zipper. I especially like it in red as it really highlights the details of the seams. Gorgeous!

WOW! This dress is a total knockout. Your dress looks nothing like the pattern photo. It is 1000 times better. So chic and stylish. I want it!

This is such a beautiful and original dress Kay. The back zipper is perfect and I agree on not showing the zip tape. My only question is it comfortable when you sit down ?

Fabulous looking dress, love the zipper at the back and the facing from fusible interfacing is such a clever solution to reduce bulk. Thanks for a great review.

Very chic.

That zipper...along with the rest of your perfection, Kay!! Great tip on using the fusible as a facing at the neck. Is that a new technique of yours or is it a standard one you apply.? It's really wonderful.

Stunning dress -- I like how you handled the zipper, and the subtlety of the single color (the red too).

Great dress, Kay! I love the zipper and the seaming. The red one should be fun to wear too.

This dress has been made a few times, but I think this is the first one I have seen with a working zip. I really like it - great job!
