I saw this dress on your blog and this might be my favorite itieration of this design. It looks tremendous on you. The fabric is so very good for it.

OK, you just convinced me to make this pattern! I love a cowl neckline, and have been mentally prepping myself to try something other than a simple sheath dress. Your fabric looks wonderful and the fit of the dress is just awesome!

Beautiful! You've done a wonderful job in matching the plaids and I love how the cowl neckline sits.

The bias cowl looks really great with the fabric print - a great idea to swap grainlines with the skirt portion. This one's a winner! Looks great on you.

Very nice! Thanks for the note about the skirt vs cowl on the bias, too!
