Really great looking dress and helpful info on using a knit vs. a bias cut woven. I passed right by this when ordering during the Vogue sale and wish I hadn't!

Beautiful color! Yours is so much prettier than the envelope...I passed right by it as a "meh" but yours is great.

Thank you so much for this review! I have been sleeping with this pattern all week and it has now officially made it out of triage into "Great Summer Sewing Marathon of 2013" picks. And you made it in my favorite color, too!

I agree. I think your dress is a lot more flattering than the one on the pattern cover. Nice job!

I never gave this pattern a second look. Yours should be on the pattern envelope. Great looking dress!

As others have commented, I didn't give this dress pattern serious consideration until I read your review. Thanks for mentioning your use of a knit vs a woven and your subsequent changes. I like the simple, sleek look. Gathers around the waist are not flattering on me..this dress will be.

Very flattering style, simple but so effective with the pretty drape, the flared skirt and the pretty color. It is gorgeous on you!

Wonderful job on this as the fit is just excellent. I seem to be in the minority in that I bought this pattern a couple weeks ago, so I'm very anxious to try this after seeing how great yours turned out. Great review as always. = )

Really nice. Was looking at this pattern today and wasn't sure - I may now add it to the stash and hope my effort looks as nice as yours

Great dress! I just searched this pattern to see if there were reviews. Thanks for a quick review and really pretty dress!

Ooh, I love that dress. And the color is fantastic. Do lilacs some in that deep a purple? I used to have violets in my CO yard that color, but the lilacs were white or pale purple.
