I am having this dress made (afraid to tackle it myself). I am considering a matte jersey fabric. What do you think? I was also afraid of the ruching at the hip and was going to leave it off. I would appreciate any advice.

I love this dress but was scared it would be too difficult. Thanks to your review I might give it a try. It's lovely and fits you great!!!

Thank you for the review. I think you look marvelous in your dress and you encourage me to drop a few pounds to make mine.

I also love the design but have yet to sew it- I bought the pattern for my daughter, and one for me. However, she is short waisted and doesn't care for the ruching on the lower front side seam. Is there any way I can sew it without ruching it? I am cutting it out now, Please advice ASAP! Thank you for the great review too.

The dress looks great on you. I have this pattern but hadn't decided to sew it yet, I think I'll need to move it up on my "to sew" list.

I know I'm way late, but I was looking at patterns for an upcoming wedding and, of course, wanted to see if any of my choices were reviewed on pattern review--Please add my congrats on this fabulous dress. If only I knew it would look as good on me as it does on you. Fabulous.

Oh wow!! I just bought this pattern too! This dress is on my list of my summer projects. I was also thinking of cutting it off to hip level and making it a top for the summer too.

You got this done quickly! It looks just like the pattern illustration, which is a very positive recommendation for the pattern. I hope your husband likes the finished article too.
