I'm so glad that you reviewed this dress! After seeing you dress in person, I bought the Butterick pattern to make one for myself ..thanks for letting us know that it wil work with knits as well.

Nothing wrong with an "assertive" print, Connie. This is a dress that can take it. Nice job on the invisible zip - I'm still not too good at those.

I love the idea of making this in a knit. Too bad you're too tall for your clothes to fit me...

I agree, this style NEEDS a print with 'character.' The dress looks terrific on you.

Very stylish--hubby wanting you to wear it is high praise indeed, and I can't see the zipper!

What a lovely becoming dress! I can see why your DH wanted you to wear it.

Looks great - glad to know that this pattern can be made successfully w/ a knit.

Very attractive dress! I think the knit was a great choice for this pattern, as it seems to have a nice drape and none of the extra fullness that I've seen with this style.

And one of the nicer duros out there, I think. Yes, sometimes fabric doesn't look like much when in pieces. :)

I'd vote for your DH just knowing he was smart enough to marry a woman who can sew her own clothes. Great dress!
