This looks great! I tried the dress with the wrong fabric and had to toss. It turns out really nice with the right fabric. Thanks for the review.

Your dress looks wonderful on you. I too was wondering about this dress but I thik your lightweight fabric choice really works perfectly with this pattern. Love the neckline wrap as well. OK, this is on my holiday list.

Nothing is muslin-ish about your dress! It looks beautiful on you.

Great review. Good point about the narrow sleeves which I have run into before with Vogue.

Definitely a success! Can't wait to see the next one you make.

I wonder if their sample had a different amount of lengthwise stretch in the knit. That could be why you didn't have to make the same amount of length alteration as usual. Anyway, this dress looks wonderful on you and definitely worth making again!

Thanks so much for your review, I was on the limb about making this pattern after reading other reviews. I bought the fabric and the pattern ready to go, but I paused. I decided to take a chance and cut the fabric out and make my markings. So, I'm encouraged...I am gonna start sewing tonight. Thanks! BTW, your dress is beautiful, color and all! You did a wonderful job!

You've done a lovely job on this dress. Pleats do take work but they are a great detail to work through.

Beautiful..and a great fit. Those ARE narrow sleeves, but I really like the shoulder. You did a great job!
