Oh, I just love easy patterns that look good when you're finished. I think good fabric makes a big difference. Very pretty on you.

Good job with this great pattern. I also made it with rayon knit burnout and recommend it highly.

Nice job. I love the fabric you used. This is my favorite short sleeve dress pattern, and I use it often (probably have 4 versions!) it's a basic, classic sheath that will never go out of style and looks good on many different figures.

I also love this pattern. I made it out of a wearable muslin. I bought some nice knit from TS that I'm going to sew up this weekend. I think many people are concerned because the picture on the pattern has a very skinny model in a close fitting dress and that's misleading. I think this dress can work on many shapes! Thanks for the great reveiw.

Deeoika gave me some advice as to how to load the pictures differently. Hopefully it will work this time. Thanks everyone for looking - it's so wonderful to get all your feedback. N

Very nice dress! Is it cut on the bias? I love the way the stripe wraps around.
