Thanks... especially for the birthday wishes. I had a great time!
9/27/10 8:14 AM
Totally outdone yourself on this one! G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S!
9/27/10 8:49 AM
This is an amazing dress. I can understand why your husband likes it so much - you look stunning in it! The gathering at the neck into the collar piece is really unusual and a beautiful design.
9/27/10 9:33 AM
What a beautiful dress on a beautiful woman. Happy Birthday!
9/27/10 10:08 AM
There is just nothing left to say but . . . magnificent!!! You rock that dress like no one else could! I may have to pick up this pattern myself (but I know I wouldn't wear it as well as you do).
9/27/10 10:58 AM
You look fabulous in this dress! I love it! Now I am going to have to copy it, lol.
9/27/10 11:38 AM
Happy Birthday and welcome to the fabulous at 40 club. As usual you did an awesome job. Thanks for keeping me motivated.
9/27/10 12:54 PM
Really nice dress Erica.
9/27/10 12:57 PM
9/27/10 5:06 PM
Happy B-day!!! You look fabulous! Did you consider entering this in the LBD contest? With a nice jacket or knit cardigan the same as the knit used it could work for a day look.
9/27/10 5:34 PM
Thanks ReginaLit! I didn't think this dress was applicable for the LBD contest. I don't see how this dress could possibly be worn for a daytime look as well.
9/27/10 6:02 PM
Erica, are you kidding? a change of accessories & bam, it's a daytime dress! (I see it with brown leather strappy shoes, chunky bangles etc) Enter it, its perfect!
9/27/10 7:01 PM
OMG. Love this dress on you. My 50th birthday is 10 days away, and I'm inclined to try this pattern ! Great work. Super stylish.
9/27/10 7:20 PM
Wow and ditto all the above is about all I can say. You got your knockout dress and glad you had a great 40th!
9/27/10 7:22 PM
Mazzygirl, I'll play around with it and see how it looks! LOL

Absolutely stunning. What a glamorous look for your 40th birthday. Well done!
9/28/10 9:53 AM
I'm late to the party, but I want to with you a belated happy birthday, and point out that clicking on that photo of you in that dress is *not* what I should've done while wearing sweats! Beautiful, glamorous dress; it suits you perfectly.
9/29/10 9:08 AM

What a STUNNING dress! You look fabulous in it. You always make the most gorgeous dresses, but this one is particularly stupendous!
10/12/10 11:46 PM
glad you listened to your many supporters & entered the competition - good luck! LOOOOOOOVE that orange fringed bag too BTW... As always, very glamourous, I swear you could wear a hessian sack & make it look classy! Love all your different looks - fantastic!
10/13/10 6:02 AM
Your review nearly brought me to tears! Firstly because you have done a fabulous job on what is a fabulous dress and secondly because I too attempted to make this for my 40th birthday this August but it ended in a zipper snafu. Must finish it off...
10/13/10 6:19 AM
Nice work. It looks amazing.
10/13/10 7:07 AM
I thought I had commented on this incredible dress the first time around, but I see that I slipped up, so I'm glad to get a second chance. Holy mackerel, Erica, this is off the charts. Amazingly gorgeous and perfectly suited to you. Look #3 kills me. I love it!
10/13/10 9:23 AM
Wow! Absolutely gorgeous. I just love the daytime look. Really well put together and really well sewn. Belated happy 40th
10/13/10 9:26 AM
It's pretty spectacular. YOu look wonderful in it and the versatility is really unexpected.
10/13/10 9:51 AM
Erica, you are my hero:) Keep on inspiring us!
10/13/10 11:23 AM
Wow, this is gorgeous, I love the whole ensemble! Oh, and welcome to the 20/20 club lady!!
10/13/10 11:57 PM
Absolutely stunning. I saw when you posted at first and was wondering why you weren't going to enter the LBD contest. I went out to find this pattern but couldn't. I might have to order offline. Great job and happy belated Birthday.

This is such a gorgeous dress! Very very beautiful!
10/16/10 4:18 AM
Great looking dress!!
10/16/10 5:31 PM
Excellent dress, excellent style. This is a classic LBD: flexible yet statement making, and definitely not boring. It came out great also. I expect you just increased sales of that pattern.
10/18/10 7:49 PM
Wow! Such glamour and class! I love all three looks. Kudos to your photographer.
10/19/10 11:22 AM

Fantastic job on a beautiful dress!
10/22/10 2:22 PM
Wow, gorgeous. You have an excellent eye for knowing the cut and shape that work for you. And then to create it with such precision - professional finish..
10/24/10 8:28 PM
Absolutely awesomely fitted - this is what 40 should always look like and you look great!!! What a lovely dress!
10/28/10 4:21 PM
You look AMAZING!!!! I love all the looks you created and ideas just from this one pattern. Of course your hubby likes it - who wouldn't?
