The dress looks great! Not just "another sheath dress." (I swear you look younger every year.)

all the getting up in the morning and heading to the gym has paid off. look at that bootie! In a more serious note, i'm jealous you pull off this leopard? print in high Micheal Kors style. Mine would just look like some dress from Target.

You're a knock out in the dress!

Thanks ladies! Question about the bra: Sorry I didn't mention this in the review, but I had to wear a backless bra. I could have probably gotten away with a strapless, but I didn't want to risk it riding up in the back. I guess if you make it, you'd just have to see what works for you.

LOVE IT!!! I'm so glad that you posted this review. I saw that pattern and said that I definitely don't need anymore sheath dresses but never noticed the back!!! Good spot... I'm gonna buy this and make it! Super hot! Your work always looks great. Question: can you wear a bra under this dress? Is the back high enough?

I love the back view! Great dress!

My first thought, "that dress was made for her", but then, it was! On the other hand what I meant was that that dress/ pattern style was meant to be worn by you. KIller.

This dress is AH-MAZING. I love the back cut out and the cut fits you perfectly. Awesome job!

Love the back of this dress, is it still high enough to wear with a normal bra? Thanks for continuing to post on PR, I always learn something from your reviews.

I just made this dress for the second time, so it's fun to see another version. I love the fabric you chose! The nice thing about this dress is that it can be casual, with cotton fabric, or sassy, as you made yours. Love how you styled it. P.S. - your blog is one of my favorites, I've been following it for some time!

I had the same thought as you - another sheath dress, but WOW! that back makes all the difference.

Wow!, you look hot in this.

The back is the definite wow factor. Great job.

This dress looks hot! I never would have thought by looking at the pattern. They really should show of the back view on the front of the envelope.
