Smashing, both on you and the fabric! I agree with you on the neckline: A true round neck isn't flattering on most of us. A V, as you say, would flatter it, and I can't help but wonder about a square one. Of course changing it to a boat neck would be easiest and would look so pretty. Congrats on a job well done. :)

Thanks all for the lovely comments! AuntieShel, my height is 5' 3 1/2". I also measured the dress length from front neck edge to hem - 47". Hope that is helpful - Barbara

Don't know how I missed this when you reviewed it, but this is SPECTACULAR!!! So stunning, the way you used the border print. May I ask how tall you are as a reference if I buy this pattern? Thank you!!

Love how you were brave enough to tackle a border print and all your work certainly paid off! I love how you added the border on the bottom not only for the length but it really tied everything together as well.

I have this pattern and keep meaning to make it but haven't found the right fabric. LOVE what you did with that patterned fabric. Thanks for the inspiration!

That layout looks like something akin to BRAIN SURGERY, Doc, but you've done a SUPERB job putting your border print to use. I had actually ordered some of the fabric that is in the pattern picture, but then I got a note that, well, actually, it WASN'T that fabric, so I canceled the order. I've never been able to imagine anything that would look quite as good, UNTIL NOW, and I don't even have to imagine! BEAUTIFUL dress! ;o)

The fabric placement is excellent and the fit is divine. You did a great job on this and it looks fabulous on you. You have reminded me that I still intend to make this pattern.

That is so cool! Your border print placement is just fabulous.

Wow - terrific on you, Barbara. Thanks for showing the skirt detail. It is such a clever design. And your layout is even more clever. The border print is perfect for this. I am wondering if it could be adapted to a woven fabric. Nice work!

Love how you used this fabric! I didn't think I liked this pattern from the envelope, but your version is super, I might have to rethink my opinion of the pattern.

Wow, what a fantastic combination of pattern and fabric. You really made it work for you. Gorgeous!!

This is gorgeous! I've never given this pattern a second thought but now I may...super becoming on you and outstanding fabric and placement!

This looks really great - I also think it looks much better than the pattern envelope.

What a beautiful fabric choice for this- it looks amazing!

Very well done. I agree with Christas; you should be on the pattern envelope. This is great.

That dress looks great, it is a really unusual way to make up this pattern.

Barbara, this is spectacular!! I love love it in that border ITY print!!!

I agree with Christas, this is so beautiful it should be on the pattern envelope. Lovely fabric and the places of the border detail is spectacular.
Christas said... (5/11/12 1:14 AM) Reply
That is one very gorgeous dress! You should be on the front of the pattern envelope. Your fabric choice is absolutely wonderful. I would have never looked twice at this pattern, but now I will probably buy it!
