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

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

AHHHHH Nancy!! Worth waiting for!! Now I can see it! Really cute dress. This is definately my favorite dress pattern too. Very elegant. Lots of compliments! Thanks for the review and for working so hard to post pictures! Carla

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.

very pretty dress and it looks really nice on you.

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.
