i likeit. real nice color on you. i wouldn't have given this pattern a second thought, but seeing it made up insteadof just a sketch, well, i'm going to have to consider that now. i like it better sleeveless.

Gorgeous as always! I saw a pattern similar to this (I think it was a Vogue) but I passed on it, might have to take another look!

What a great looking dress and the fit is perfect! Since you left off the sleeves did you have to modify the armhole to get it to fit so nicely??

Hey Marji - your dress looks great, and I LOVE your fabric. So, you're shopping in France, now are you?

Beautiful job!! Love the color too! I also love to put wooly nylon in both loopers for stretchy stuff--it makes the seams so resilient.

Your sleeveless version turned out great. I *love* it when dresses are so comfortable you don't want to take them off!

I love the way the bodice fits so smoothly. The lining and clear elastic were very successful techniques. This is a great pattern for you.

What a wonderful color and flattering style on you. I just tried this dress on in a store this weekend and thought, I know this is a pattern somewhere, so thanks for the timely review.

Love your version. I bought this pattern after seeing the previous reviews. You'll have to wear your dress when you go to France.

Wow - reading the update (not very carefully), I assumed the picture was your 18 year old daughter... Are you sure that's you? You do not look old enough to have an 18 year old. :) You look smashing! And the dress is fab too!
