Mah-ve-lous fit, dahling..This is the prettiest "spring" dress I have seen so far this year. You need morrre of these, since this one looks so great. Diane Von Furstenberg built an empire on these..

Fabulous dress, it looks great on you and I love the fabric.

How FABULOUS do you look in THIS? Wow! It's beautiful. Actually, I like the way you have the darker bands placed. I always like things in threes (or odd numbers, anyway), and this way, they're balanced down the entire length of the dress. If you were hippy (like someone else who shall remain unnamed :o) that might be a different story. As it is, it looks great! Thanks for a very helpful review.

Very nice! Looks so good that you've convinced me to try this in a print.

This dress looks wonderful for you--not too full and not too long--just right for the perfect spring dress.

Great review and thanks for the comparision to CJ's pattern. I am a little slow on the upload and have not sewn my wrap dress up yet, but have purchased several variations of the pattern (meaning I don't know what to do firs :o )

Great spring/summer dress. I've been thinking about this KS pattern, and you've just pushed me over the edge to buy it. Beautiful.

I've been wanting a wrap dress that actually keeps things under wraps! This looks like a great one. And I LOVE your fabric! Nice job!!!

Your dress is beautiful and looks wonderful on you. Thanks for the review...have to add pattern to my list. :)

Darling!!! Thanks Barbara for the thorough review and for the comparison with the CJ pattern. Also, until you mentioned it, I didn't see the benefit of the darker color at your waist to emphasize it--very helpful hint. Thank you for pointing this out--but keep it between us--no one else will ever notice it! Thanks again. Carla

Barbara, this looks terrific on you and is such a flattering style. Thanks for your advice about the pattern and its features. I also noticed your shoes which look gorgeous and are a perfect match for the colours of your fabric. You look great!

You have just made the most beautiful wrap dress I have every it!!!
Karla Kizer said... (3/29/07 7:43 PM) Reply
You certainly chose a pattern that lets the fabric be the star. With such perfect fit, there are no pulls and wrinkles to distract from the print. Very nice!
