I think it looks incredible on you, for whatever it's worth!

A big "huh!" to your husband. That dress looks great on you. Was he having a bad day? I love the irridescence of the fabric! I've always envisioned this pattern as a casual dress, but you've given me an idea for a more evening approach. And it looks great!

Beautifully made, lovely choice of colour and fabric. I would be thrilled to have a dress like this, it looks comfortable and yet so stylish. I wouldn't take the comments by your partner too seriously, 'most' men hardly have a clue how to put together an outfit for themselves let alone someone else.

I ditto the comments about your dress!It is lovely, and so are you!He better keep his mitts on you lookin like this! See how many men sew on this website, cause most don't have the patience, or ingenuity..Yes, I sigh on the legs from my 5'1" vantage.Really looks like a runway look and so do you! You go, girl!!

If your husband's going to be like that, it might be better to just not ask him :-). Most of them can barely dress themselves, much less have constructive opinions about handmade items for other people.. and I think we all agree here you look really fabulous in that dress!

I think the dress is beautiful, in agreement with the other comments, sometime dh /men in general like dresses more form fitting. Thanks for the review.

Well, your husband is NUTS (no offense). :o)) If I looked this good in a dress, I'd make about five of them. Very, very pretty, and you look like a model in it. :o) I love the color too. The sheen and the color in combination look quite sophisticated. Congratulations on your first review!

I have that issue with my BF sometimes - he often thinks my patterned fabric too overwhelming. But then again, it is only natural that we don�t have the same taste in everything. So I wear the stuff anyway, as he wears garments I don�t particularly care for... as long as it is not about your whole wardrobe... Anyway, I like the dress on you! Especially the skirt finish and length, shows some very nice legs indeed! (Wish I had some like that...)

I love it! Your husband is only one person in the whole world - personally my first response when I clicked on the image was WOW! Great job, I think it looks beautiful and stylish - wear it out anyway, he might change his mind when he sees how many compliments you get on it :)

Very cute! I like your alteration to the sleeves.

Reiko, I think you sew beautifully and would look lovely in anything you made. But next time you might want ask for your husband's opinion about a fabric or a pattern before you start your project. I've learned that whenever my husband gives me his opinion about an outfit I'm working on, he's usually right.

mickisews is right, my husband doesn't like things on me unless its form fitting or clevage baring! This looks great on you and you are so beautiful! I also like your fabric choice!

What does he know?? It looks great on you! Wear it with pride.

I have to agree -- the dress looks great on you! I think mickisews hit the nail on the head. ;)

I think you look BEAUTIFUL!! Sometimes men like looks that are more "form fitting" on women, and that is the only thing they can see. I love this on you. Keep up the good work :>) Micki
