Beautiful dress..halter necks definitely suit you well. The trim really highlights the overall design.

Gorgeous dress! Beautiful color for you, and I love the contrast at the hem. I see some of the gaping; I bet you could get away with a 12. Halters don't need so much ease because they only cover the front. Do not fear the invisible zipper; I personally find them easier than the regular ones!

Very very pretty. Love the print. Good call on the silk sash and hem treatment. They're the perfect touch!

This dress looks like and reminds me of one of those expensive and stylish dresses you see at the store "Anthropologie." Please don't rip out that hem treatment! I think it really makes the dress! Great choice of fabric for the pattern, and I bet you could get away with a size 12, too.

Beautiful dress, the halter is perfect for you and great fabric.

What lovely fabric, perfect swirls go with the curves of this style that suits you so nicely. I usually pinch out 1/4-1/2 " along bias of wrap styles, even a smaller size they still gap but pinching out length seems to help. Enjoy your dress !

What a great looking dress. I, too, love the contrast on the hem to match the sash.

thanks for your review. Your shape is pretty similar to mine ( just add hefty upper arms ) so I love reading reviews of things, that might flatter me too :) Your choice of fabric is excellent!

I love it! I've noticed for a while now now that a Winmil has really upgraded their fabrics. My office is 5 minutes away so I'm in there all time.

I have 1/2 finished this dress and feel inspired to finish it now. I did the collared version and stopped because the collar is not flattering. I think I should take the collar off now. Your colours are awesome. I like the way the brown compliments your hair.
