Cute version!! I could see it in your blog but the other pics wouldn't open. I LOVE the sleeves!

Darn! I can't look at your picture without signing up for a Yahoo account. I love this design and am glad to read you didn't need the zipper.

Your dress looks beautiful. Very cute with the bias skirt as presented in the magazine. You look great in it. I love mine too!

Very nice! I realized I didn't need the zipper after I made mine and put it on without opening the zipper! Doesn't that make it a whole lot easier? The bias cut is really flattering too.

This looks great! I've been thinking of making this one, so it's good to know about the zipper.

I think you might bethe first reviewer to make the skirt on the bias as Burda intended. It looks really fabulous. It's a bonus that you don't need a zipper to put it on but it still looks like a fitted dress.

Love the Ellie May comment! I made this dress and my kids asked if it was pajamas. I had it on with flip flops that had a silk flower on the toe and it did look like I was wearing jammies with fuzzy slippers. I promptly changed shoes.
