Great Job, Rebecca! I have to make this dress after seeing your finished project. I will definitely watch Trudy's neckband tutorial. The boots make the outfit, Glamour Girl!

Nice choice of fabric for that dress. Knit dresses are so comfortable, you will wear it with pride.

Your dress looks great on you. Nice style and choice of fabric and cute ensemble.

Great job on your dress!! I love the color and especially the boots! I agree about the bottom band on the skirt though, I ended up shortening mine significantly in my second version to get it to look like the illustration.

Sherrill, I am 5 feet 8 inches tall and very short waisted. Two-thirds of my length is from the waist down.

Great styling with that wonderful dress. How tall are you and are you long waisted, or short? That way I'll know how much blousing I'll need to get a similar look.

Love it, Rebecca! It looks great on you and your review is very helpful. I will be adding this pattern to my stash!

Thanks for all the lovely compliments. If you would like to spend a ridiculous amount of money on boots, please see the boots here: Boots

Great looking dress! I have this pattern and seeing how great everyone else's is turning is making me want to bump it up in my queue.

Fabulous dress! I have not tried Hot Patterns yet, but I may have to breakdown and get this one!

Thanks for an excellent review . . . I will be doing this pattern myself in the near future and will bear your comments in mind when cutting it out!

Great dress and great boots! Go for the snowshoe version - dresses are warm in the winter and it would be really fun.

What a great review, and I REALLY like this dress! I probably wouldn't have even noticed the pattern, but YOURS has turned out so nicely, I love it! I can already see you SNOW-SHOEING away in this. :o) (I love your boots, too.)

Great review and love the tough-ish boots. It is fun to sew up such a quick outfit. Nearly instant gratification.
