Thanks for such a great review! I have an hourglass figure and have a difficult time finding patterns that work with my shape and still look youthful and fitted without being sleazy. I can't wait to try this!

Adorable dress and photo! Nothing better than loving a garment we've made for ourselves.

Eve, this is a Masterpiece! Beautifully conceived, expertly constructed, and artistically presented. You've accessorized it to perfection and in your stylish photo, you are a Bombshell! Love everything about it, Lily

Eve, your dress is just stunning. STUNNING! In my humility I have to say that I soooo wish I had your attention to detail-- you do wonderful work! -I too love piping, and often use spray adhesive to get it to hold still while I sew it in-- but basting would be a better idea because occasionally the fabric gets sticky' under the piping foot with the adhesive there. In short, I adore this dress. If/when I make it... down South, we'll call it the 'Evie' dress! :)

Great review! I love the ones with such personal touches. Cute dress, too. I agree about VPL and Bra straps showing- it's just tacky.

Beautiful and adorable! Although modern, the complete look with the pearls and the shoes makes me think of the 50's, a time when ladies really dressed!

Great photo! And a wise move by widening the shoulder straps. I, too, hate it when the bra straps peek out. Your dress is gorgeous and it really flatters your nice shape!

Holy cats, the number of pattern pieces boggles the mind. Clearly you had no trouble seeing your vision through to a gorgeous fitting dress. Love the piping!

What a great looking summer dress. It fits you beautifully and looks gorgeous. Love the fact that the shoulder straps appear to be wide enough to cover bra straps. That's a good thing.
