Not too many women, never mind men, would have the patience to rip everything out & start all over! Looks fabulous, you did a super job!

Beautiful dress, you have got a great fit, and I like the ribbon belt. Your sister is very lucky and looks lovely in this.

Good job! Thanks for your review - makes me consider this - I really like how the dress doesn't take much fabric. And I especially like your remark regarding how it interacts with the tummy - something most of us are conscious about. I'm totally impressed with the short time you've been sewing your creativity in making sensible alterations and looked up your other reviews & will be looking forward to seeing your future creations.

She sure doesn't LOOK like she has a tummy! Love the color and love the addition of the belt. It's a simple beauty of a dress.
