Marji - I'm glad to see you've made something for yourself! I like the method you used of attaching the bodice to the lining. I'm sure this idea will come in handy to me later on. This dress looks nice on you and I'm sure you'll wear it as much as the green one!

Great dress, love the fabric. I bet you'll get a lot of wear out of it, it looks super on you!

Lovely dress and great fit. Your bodice lining tips are helpful! You look great in it.

Great dress and terrific review. I got some of that fabric from Lucy's and I sure wish I could get my hands on some more. It's great stuff.

Great dress! It looks wonderful on you. This is my favorite fabric of all time. I've made a skirt and a top and still have enough left (from a subsequent purchase) to make at least one more thing. This fabric washes great ... after a couple seasons of constant wear/laundry, the colors are still as bright as ever.

Great dress. I always like it when someone makes an outfit from a pattern that I never noticed before! Great fabric too. The way you constructed the bodice is genius.

Your dress is so pretty on you---and thanks for such a complete review. Reading it was a mini sewing lesson for me.

Cute, flattering dress! I hope that you wear this one to death, too.

Love your dress~it looks stunning on you! The fabric is perfect for this style. Thank you so much for sharing all the techniques you used in the process of constructing it.

Looks like you have another "wear-it-until-it-falls-apart" dress. This fits you so nicely and looks as if it can go just about anywhere. Thanks for a most thorough and useful tutorial. Yours beats the pattern instruction sheet hands down.

Another winner. Although maybe you should also make up another version of the Maggy London Dress in another knit fabric? Thanks for showing the details on what you did with the inside.

Pretty dress! I'm a big fan of rayon/lycra jersey. I can see you wearing this dress to death too. :)

Your dress looks like the go-to garment for summer, great use of the fabulous floral print. Thank you for your detailed construction method, much better than Vogue!

I always loved that fabric, but was too late in buying. Great looking dress.

You look terrific in that dress. I like the Maggie London, too, but this one is hard to beat! This was a perfect use for that yummy fabric. Thanks for your description of the bodice - I'll try that on a dress coming up.

I'm going to try your tutorial! Lovely dress and thank you for all the details.
