Beautiful dress, Kim! I am also relieved to hear that someone else has a husband who rarely tells them they look nice -- mine never does. I thought I was the only one.

You look fantastic! the dress is to die for, in fit and color and everything, and you look like a million bucks in those fancy-pants louboutins. Go girl!!

Woohoo, love this on you! My fabric for this dress has just been tossed in the laundry basket so I can start on it next.

I love it! So flattering on you. Glad to hear about the FBA as I'm also a bit perplexed as to how to do one on this dress. Definitely sew yourself another!

Very flattering on you! Thanks for a very useful review. I notice that the pattern model is bustier than is often the case, so maybe this is one that really flatters the large-busted and curvy? Those diagonal lines look great on you.

Love it on you! Thanks for the review.

Wow, you look fabulous in this! I love this design but was hesitant to try it because of my bust, so it's really encouraging to see how great it looks on you. Thanks for such a helpful review!

Really like how it came out! I just bought this pattern, even though I'm trying not to buy any more patterns till I actually use some of the ones I already had to have! You should be very proud of this one, you look lovely in it.

This one is on my list for sure as soon as I can figure out where I need to wear a dress again. Glad to hear on the FBA. Also my issue and was hoping not to figure it on this one. Great job.
