Dress looks fabulous on you! Awesome review - thanks for pointing out the tricks you needed to pull of this deceptively simple looking design. Also love that you linked your blog to the vogue design - I'd looked at both, but not made that connection. Ta for details on wooden spoon - needs piccies - reminiscent of instruction in dumpling recipe to use 4ft pole (no explanation)...

Although I love the cut out back, I would also like to draft the cut out off the pattern to make it more versatile. Scratching my head though as to how to do it - any ideas anyone?

Great review and beautiful dress. It looks very good on you. I hope there are a few fluttery breezes whenever you wear it so that the lovely lining shows!

I always was confused about that funny Burda spoon illustration. I will carefully read your translation and get the picture I hope. That is a very popular pattern and would be perfect for so many things. Nice job by nicegirl as always!

This is a knockout! And your review is so thorough. Wish I could wear cutouts and look as lovely as you do.

Great dress and even better review! Don't know though if my "back fat" will allow me to wear this cutout. Ah, youth!
