I don't know how I missed this one before, but I love your version!! The icky pattern envelope picture had turned me off, but yours is great. Nice job!

Lovely as always! Thanks for the idea about using piping (or faux piping) to define this sort of detail when sewing with busy prints. Adding that to my mental bag of sewing tricks right now....

Totally spiff. Great fabric/pattern match-up. Location shots, eh? Very fancy.

Oooh, what a pretty dress. LOVE the fabric and the style. The gentleman in the background picture seems to like it also! :)

Adorable, dress and photo. Too bad our pattern companies don't do some creative photography like this. Great review.

Great action shop, I mean shot. I sure envy your cute figure, which looks great in this dress.

What wonderful fabric, and it looks great on you! I have this in my stash but don't feel brave enough yet to try it...Maybe in the fall, in long sleeves. Enjoy your dress.

I thought you had made a petticoat . . . but this is an homage to Marilyn Monroe, then? Lovely! I think the people watching you think you are Someone, one of the Beautiful People (and you are!) Lovely dress.

Fabulous dress, and wonderful photos. I also appreciate the detailed review. Love this pattern. Sigh. Another one to buy. I love piping and you make wonderful use of it here.

What a fantastic photoshoot! Your dress looks perfect flutterring in the wind and it is much cooler than the pattern photo for sure.

did Cidell take this??!! I love the people gawking in the background! Adorable dress. The "just above the knee" length is perfect for this style!! excellent review.

The dress is darling on you. And lucky you, to get to the garment district to go shopping! I am green with envy.
