Very nice dress! I like the fabric and it fits you so well! Good alterations...I like your idea of the "Steam a Seam" too, I think I'll try that on the next knit I do. Enjoyed your review.

Melody, I saw this exact dress, in the exact print, except it was a Diane von Furstenberg - for $345!!! I bet yours is better made. You look fantastic in it!

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!

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.)

I have this pattern and haven't made it up yet. I can't find the "right" fabric to make it out of. Your's is BEAUTIFUL!!

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!
