Red or green ? It is difficult to chose one as a favorite dress on you... This one as little something that is distinctive and so nice on you. Bravo ! You are so prolific, four reviews in two days ! You are impressive.

I adored this dress as soon as I saw the pattern, but haven't been brave enough to make it yet. Yours is simply gorgeous.

laura, Just beautiful - everything you touch turns into gold! I love the idea of the roll of bias interfacing. For a long time now, I have been cutting strips of knit interfacing and fuse it to most of my knits and some wovens. I purchases a lovely pair of expensive pants and saw that they did this to get a nice edge on some tropical printed linen. I was hooked at that moment. I cut the strips a little wider than the seam allowance. BUT the roll of tape sounds SO much easier!

Another gorgeous dress in a great colour. This pattern intrigued me when the magazine came out, I may have to take another look.

This dress looks wonderful on you and so much better than BWOF's photo. Thanks for all the tips and great job.

Fantastic! I bought this issue specifically for this dress but haven't gotten around to sewing it yet. But with Tany's version and now yours, this is being seriously bumped up my queue!! Thanks for the tip on the fusible tape, I've never used it with knits before, either...
