Actually, I was about to suggest a braided leather belt just before I got to the sentence where you mentioned one. Thanks for the review and for reminding me about this great pattern.

This is lovely on you and you did a great job with the WOF instructions (or lack thereof). I think a print would be great, but this linen version is, as you say, a timeless classic. And I like it without a belt, even if it isn't very fitted. Very nice! Post another review if you make another, please.

Very classic look--you might try a print scarf at the waist or make a bright and/or printed obi-type sash.

It looks so elegant. Congratulations on your first WOF. I agree about interfacing... what's good enough for Loes is good enough for me!

Very nice. Does it have shoulder princess seams? I can't quite tell from the picture.

I really like your choice of fabric & the buttons are a nice accent. Very helpful review too.

Carolyn: there are princess seams that extend to a small yoke that sits at the top of the shoulders. I hope that makes sense!

It's very pretty -- not boring at all. Very professional looking result, too.

Nice dress and very classic. I think a belt would be nice but could go without just as easy.

looks great! I was also eyeing up this dress (or the orange variant).

Great review and great looking dress. Yes, it's very timeless and I'm sure you'll get lots of use from the pattern, now that you've mastered the construction in the absence of instructions.

I was so glad to find a review on this. I bought this one and this is the only thing besides some pants that appealed to me. Your dress is lovely.
