Melody, You did a beautiful job! The dress looks fantastic on you. I like the dress as well and you may have just given me the encouragement I need to try it out.

Very beautiful! I'm about to attempt on a brown/beight knit. Hope mine is half as good looking on me. Thanks for the review!

wow, this morning I nearly bought this pattern in a half price sale (we don't get 99c patterns in australia). Now I'm kicking myself that I didn't!

Now, you could never get such a spectacular fit in RTW. Very nice dress, and you could easily make a few more of different fabrics. (Great fabric, also.)

Your dress is stunning and so flattering. I was intrigued by your comment about "that awful wrinkle" you get with Butterick. I'm beginning to think Butterick patterns aren't for me, either, especially in the sleeves. However, I'm not sure what's wrong between me and the sleeve. I'll be watching your reviews and blog to see what I can learn from you. Also, I loved the Steam a Seam tips!
