I love your version of the dress. Fabric is great. Very attractive on you. I think you will get a lot of use out of the dress because it's so comfy.

Another highly original garment, and it really suits you. You are right about the ties - taking them under the bust and around the back is less successful than tying them in front.

This is gorgeous on you. It's amazing how much better looking this dress is when you don't use the ties as shown in the pattern photos! A really good look on you.

This looks great! That fabric is really nice in this design. And, I agree, I don't like the straps tied on mine either.

Lovely dress, very flattering. I think this one of Sandra's best styles. Tying the ties in the back only works if you have NO bust and are the size of a toothpick. Left hanging in the front, the ties provide an attractive vertical (slimming!) line.

Oh my, with the straps tied we have a maternity top and without we have a charming dress -- charming wins every time!

Such a pretty dress. It's amazing how those ties either flowing down or tied around can make such a change in the total appearance. A lovely print and color on you.

looks fantastic on you and to have comfort too what more can a girl ask for.

Lovely dress! I agree with you about the ties. They work better hanging down than wrapped under the bust.

Love the color on you. You look great in the dress. The dress is much nicer w/o the ties under the bust.
