Wow. What a great story on your dress. It looks stunning on you; it really shows off your figure in an elegant way. Your DH must have been so proud to have you at the party in such a wonderful outfit that you made yourself.

You got this done quickly! It looks just like the pattern illustration, which is a very positive recommendation for the pattern. I hope your husband likes the finished article too.

Oh wow!! I just bought this pattern too! This dress is on my list of my summer projects. I was also thinking of cutting it off to hip level and making it a top for the summer too.

I know I'm way late, but I was looking at patterns for an upcoming wedding and, of course, wanted to see if any of my choices were reviewed on pattern review--Please add my congrats on this fabulous dress. If only I knew it would look as good on me as it does on you. Fabulous.

The dress looks great on you. I have this pattern but hadn't decided to sew it yet, I think I'll need to move it up on my "to sew" list.
10/22/08 12:54 PM
I also love the design but have yet to sew it- I bought the pattern for my daughter, and one for me. However, she is short waisted and doesn't care for the ruching on the lower front side seam. Is there any way I can sew it without ruching it? I am cutting it out now, Please advice ASAP! Thank you for the great review too.

Thank you for the review. I think you look marvelous in your dress and you encourage me to drop a few pounds to make mine.
1/31/09 1:26 PM
I love this dress but was scared it would be too difficult. Thanks to your review I might give it a try. It's lovely and fits you great!!!

Have just ordered this pattern and am now really looking forward to making it. Am planning to use a silk jersey - will this work?!
3/30/09 1:18 PM
How sweet is this whole story!! :-) And the dress! It's FABULOUS my dahhhling! :-) Thank you for this, I'm going to sew this for a wedding this weekend!

Beautiful! I have this pattern and now you have inspire to want to make it ! Thanks for the review.

Wow! What a stunning dress!!
1/29/10 2:51 PM
I am having this dress made (afraid to tackle it myself). I am considering a matte jersey fabric. What do you think? I was also afraid of the ruching at the hip and was going to leave it off. I would appreciate any advice.
