Beautiful job! I love that dress! Because you said you were pear shaped, I posted this dress on the Pearables Pinterest Board @

Great to see the pic w you in it, that tells me more than a mannequin view. Shows how low cut the inset is or isn't. You did a great job, looks great on you. I have a boyish build, may make the full skirt view to make it look like I have some hips! Slim skirts are not my friend.

What a beautifully made dress and the fit is perfect. I prefer this flared version, but a lot of people have gone with the shift style.

Wonderful dress. I recently bought the pattern and can't wait to make it. Just looking for the right fabric. Your floral version is very inspiring.

This dress looks just lovely on you. I wouldn't have given the pattern a second thought without your review. Thanks for sharing.

Love your dress, your print is a botanical reminisce of vintage style barkcloth fabrics from the 50's, what a find!

This is gorgeous! It looks fantastic on you and I just *love* the print of the fabric you chose (and what an amazing deal!!):) I wasn't crazy about the fabric Butterick chose for their pattern cover, yours is tons better!:)

I love this dress in this fabric! It looks so light and tropical. Good to hear it is friendly to the pear shaped among us!

This is the second version of this dress that I have seen and I love it! I passed it over in the catalog because the fit on the model was so unflattering. Thanks!
