I just saw this review. What a lovely fabric, and the dress looks so good on you. Well fitted andn sewn. The color is really beautiful and compliments you.

This looks a lot like #8989. I am making the 8989 right now. It is the same bodice part with a different cut below the waist. I found the armscye a little high on the 8989 and experiemented with lowering it and found the same thing you did with this dresss, it is too low. Your dress looks great on you! Take a look at the 8989. It is almost the same dresss!

Great dress. I love the neckline. Burdas do tend to run tight, I think.

Oh I love the sweetheart neckline, one of my favorites. This looks great on you!

Perfect for the hot weather here in Boulder. The simple lines are becoming and you got a good fit.

Very nice! Don't you love it when you don't need a FBA?

Very flattering--and the center front seam looks fine!

So pretty. It looks a little vintage, too. You made me laugh picturing some one sticking their head under your arm and looking at your bra. heehee.

I have looked at this pattern in the book but JoAnn's doesn't carry it. I like it for all the reasons you mentioned it. I will have to order a copy of it.
