tr1c14, Beautiful job on the dress! Love the geometric pattern of the fabric too. You got a great deal on that! Oh, and the kitty is pretty cute too.

I really like the way this dress turned out. I even have the pattern -- this might be the next one. Thanks.

Thank you everybody for your kind words! Annete1, just a warning if you do go ahead with it, I have no idea what the neckline is supposed to look like; my tailor's tacks fell out so I ended up deciding where to position the wrap bits by basting it while wearing it, and then slipstitching it together in the middle just to be sure. If you follow the actual pattern markings, I have no idea what will happen!

You can't believe how many times I've mulled this pattern over. The ONLY reason I haven't succumbed thus far is because I thought it would be YET ANOTHER pattern with a neckline that was entirely TOO STINKIN' LOW (and I've said I am NOT buying any more of those patterns). But yours doesn't look too low at all! This looks GREAT on you! I love your print, and you're right, it's perfect with boots!

Very nice dress. I've been thinking of making it for myself so I am glad to see a review. I love how your cat helped and then made sure to be in your photos!
