Beautiful dress; I agree, I like Butterick's version better than Simplicity's. Your fabric is gorgeous---perfect for Autumn. **edited to add: I just went to check out your review of the simplicity duro dress-- and I think it looks very pretty on you, too. You chose fabulous colors for it also.

Fantastic dress and fantastic on you. I agree that this dress is more flattering on you than the Simplicity dress. I keep thinking of pinafores with the other dress and myself to old for it. So, when I saw this dress I said, I can look good in this dress. I bought the pattern after reading Gorgeous Things blog. Thanks for the review, I love it in velvet. Scrumptious.

I have been debating about whether or not to try this dress - you have me convinced. Am hoping mine will look as beauiful as yours.

Very nice dress. I agree that both versions (Simplicity & Butterick) are nice but that this one will have a longer wearing life.

Very pretty. I haven't been moved to consider this style of dress until seeing your version. I guess I need to get this pattern. Do you think it would work in stretch velvet?

I like this look. I made the McCall's version but the more I see of this pattern, the more I like it because of the set in sleeves. Seeing this dress makes me want to go out and get this pattern.

Your Simplicity version is very pretty, but this one looks stunning on you, with the longer, slimmer line. I love the brown velvet. Thank you for such a detailed and helpful review. And your blog's a very nice read; thanks for sharing it!

Beautiful dress. Looks great on you.

Your version of the dress is very stunning! The boots look fantastic with it and bring out the black in the high waist band. I like the contrast you created with the band. The tulle trim looks really great to adorn the neckline. Its cool that you were able to utilize stash fabric in such an elegant way!
