Be-you-ti-ful! Thanks for all the tips. I think you made a good decision to leave out most of the pleats; it makes your dress look sleeker. Gee, wonder if I have this issue?

Beautiful dress! I pulled this BWOF issue out for the very same dress during my summer wardrobe planning.

Why, oh why, do I not have this issue of BWOF? That is a knockout dress. I love it!

We're getting awfully close to couture here. Love the drape and the collar.

Gorgeous! Beautifully detailed dress and beautifully executed! This dress is so stylish and flattering on you. It just shows you that nothing is really 'new' in fashion.

Kay, your collar falls like a charm. I am impressed, again, by your skills. This dress is, without a doubt ,much more beautiful then any you would buy in a store. Never would they sew with such precision. This is a fabulous dress. The picture you have as thumbnail is well chosen, it makes us want to click and see more. Thank you for this wonderful review.

That is one smashing dress! Very lovely. Interesting about the center front curling, and your fix sure solved that. Thanks for the great review and idea with what to do with all this linen in my stash! That style is timeless.

Great detailing and construction on your coat dress. It's a great classic look that will never go out of style.

What an amazing dress --- the style is so flattering and classic. Your sewing looks beautiful as well. Congratulations!

Gorgeous Kay. I've had the same experience in finding *just* the right pattern in Burda. Lovely!

You and I really have the same taste! What a beautiful dress. Unfortunately I don't have BWOF from that year. Otherwise I would sew it too. Perhaps you can sew a Jalie tee for instant gratification? (If you like making a tee).

Wonderful dress--really a classic. I like the design changes you made & your sewing is really beautiful.
