As always, a fantastic fit, Vonne. Your colour choice is perfect for your dark hair. The Vogue model looks like she is wearing one size too small for her - it is tight across her bust and hips - but you are probably right, pegs do wonders in fashion shoots!

You are right! I never noticed what a wonderful pattern this is until reading your review. What a great dress. I, too, prefer armhole facings versus bias tape. Nice work!

What a pretty dress and I love your photos. The garden gate provides such a beautiful rustic contrast to the ladylike quality of the fit and fabric. And yes, I'll bet they pegged the skirt for the photo shoot ;)

Looks lovely. I really like the idea of the sewn in ties instead of a tie belt. Much more polished looking.

Vonne, you look very pretty indeed in your Summery dress, and I too love the additions of the ties to control the volume ... very smart and stylish. Lovely, Lily

Lovely dress, I like the ties below the bust. Your dress looks better on you then the one on pattern envelope

Your dress looks better on you than the pattern envelop model. Wonderful fabric. It is the dead of winter here and I am ready to hop on a plane and go where every you are with all the warm weather. Great review and I also want a slide show for my pictures. Excuse the rank all out envy!

After reading your review I did take a second look at this pattern. The fit on your dress looks really nice, as does the colour of your dress. Very pretty. Thanks for an informative review.

This is GORGEOUS! The fabric is perfect for this! Feminine and drapey. I have this pattern and was excited to see how lovely your dress turned out. Now I want to move this up on my to do list!

Your dress is lovely on you! This is one of those sleeper patterns that you skip by until someone, like you, makes it pop!

Thanks for the info on the excess fabric in the princess seams .... I was just looking at this pattern yesterday, I love the pleats at the neckline. Thanks for the review.

Lovely work here, Vonne. The fabric is just right for summer and your addition of ties gives it a much more stylish look than a belt. You look great!
