this dress looks great on you well done for knowing a dress that really flatters

Very flattering, and especially nice with the prints you've chosen. :o)

Great looking dress and I love your new hairdo also.

You look gorgeous in the dress, with your chic new haircut.

That is a brilliant tip for finishing the facing edge by sewing the interfacing before fusing, genius! That would never have occured to me, thank you!

I like all your dresses, they look so good on you. I purchased the pattern after your first review; best get it made up ;-)

Marvelous placement of pattern, brilliant!

both dresses look good. Isn't it nice when you have something you wear over and over again? I have a KS dress like that that I really must make again. You look great in your new dress!

Love the animal print and love the background for your photo - you are looking like one hot kitty.

Your dresses are lovely and well made. The bold prints are fabulous and I can see why you like to wear them often.

Fabulous. Dress is great (better than pattern) but it's the whole look that does it.

Beautiful dresses and nice placement of print. Thanks for an informative review, too. The green jungle-like backdrop with the animal print fabric makes a perfect photo. Growl! I would not have looked twice at this pattern, but you have made it quite enticing!

I really like both versions! Can't wait to see it paired with your leather jacket.

Love your dress and of course you look fabulous in it.

I think your dress on you looks much better than the pattern photo! Nicely curved to you without clinging and in a fun fabric. Thanks for the great review!

I love the dress! You look great. It's a pattern that I've considered several times. Now, I'll take the plunge. Thanks!

This IS a fun little summer dress, isn't it? Doesn't take a whole lot of fabric and is comfy to wear . . . what more could you ask? I found that it ran a little large myself. Looks great on you!

A perfect summer dress. Looks great on you. I love the fabric.

Love this dress on you. Makes me want it.
Rhoda K said... (7/29/09 7:19 PM) Reply
Very nice dress and looks great. After looking at the pattern, I would have passed, too, as it looks like it would be too much like a tent, BUT you definitely proved that wrong! Thanks for your review.

Lovely dress, it looks great teamed with the glads, such a stylish look for the summer!

Spectacular dress! The print you chose is really cool, too.

Love your dress on you! Yours looks much better that the envelope. Thanks for the tips on fit, did you chose your size based on high bust measurement?

i totally agree, i wanted this pattern but was scared it would "fall flat". you made me want to buy it! Your print and fit make it really high end looking!! LOVE that print!
Sewliz said... (7/29/09 10:20 AM) Reply
Gorgeous dress, I love it on you! Yours is much more stylish than the pattern envelope.
EleanorSews said... (7/29/09 10:16 AM) Reply
You hit the nail on the head ~ it is "just a terrific summer dress ... chic and not too young". Like the others, I might have to watch for Vogue patterns on sale.

You look great in your beautiful dress - it is flattering and simple at the same time, in a great way. Like the jewelry.
cindyann said... (7/29/09 10:04 AM) Reply
Great dress Nancy. I would have passed this pattern by but after seeing yours made up I think I might pick it up. Your fabric made all the difference.
