Terrific review. Thank you for that. and your dress looks superb on you. I was particularly interested in your remark about the neckline etc balancing a pear shape nicely. I think you are right.

Stunning dress! I love both versions.

ChristmasHills - the insets and seaming almost create a bust shelf, which is why I think it is flattering on my pear shape. It really helps draw the eye upward.

Wow, looks beautiful! Very flattering shape for most figures and more detail than your basic sheath dress. I think I want one in every color!

Great review and super job on the dress. Good luck in the contest. Thank you for such an indepth review I am glad to find out about the shorter waist measurement - I need that., Based on your review I am going to try this one.

Beautiful job. Your dresses look amazing. I've recently discovered Style Arc. As I'm short waisted they might be good for my body. Thanks for such an informative review.

What a wonderful, helpful review! Thank you for the details and beautiful picture. The dress looks amazing on you. I just tried the pattern and also lengthened the torso a bit. Though my pattern is at least one size too large, the lines of the dress are already flattering. This company has amazing customer service as well.
