What a lovely dress!! EXCELLENT job. I think you can get a lot of use from this pattern now that you have slaved to get it just right - the fit looks perfect! Thanks for the tip about the Claire Shaeffer book. I had wondered if it were worth buying.

It's a very nice jumper, but I'm also not sure you'll get a lot of use out of it as a dress. Even tropical weight wool, lined to boot, would be unbearable in most climates hot enough to warrant the sleeveless and open neck thing.. I also wonder whether you'll have enough room to put a shirt underneath, seeing how it fits you so well in the picutre? Still, you clearly did much better than McCall here :-).

Thanks for the review. It is nice to hear about "self drafted patterns because I too find after I modify this and that it becomes so and it is extremely good experience to learn how to do it. Your dress turned out great!

I think it looks great--totally, perfectly classic. With a very light knit top you should be fine in winter, and you can always throw a little sweater over it when you wear it sleeveless.

fuzzygalore, you make some excellent points. I'm not completely confident how much I will wear it either. I will say that my office is air conditioned, so in the summer it's pretty much freezing all the time. The lining and wool issue may not be a problem. I have yet to try out the jumper thing... but, I am hopeful!

This is very flattering on you, making all your extra fitting efforts worth it. :o) It seems very versatile, too. If it's cold in your office (like mine, where I have my heater blasting away year-'round), you might be able to make a little bolero or some sort of short jacket to wear over it. I think that would be really cute. You could even do it in eyelet for summer, and something else for winter. Great job!

With the temperature they keep most offices, you'll probably be able to wear it in summer. I think the style is very flattering and the fit is excellent.

What a beautiful dress. It looks terrific on you. A good design that you will get a lot of wear out of. A good fit too. Well done.
