What a beautiful dress! I saw the picture in your photostream when I was checking out your Vogue 8280, and I rushed to see the pattern on the Simplicity website. I wondered why yours looked so much prettier and more flattering; now I know! What an inspired idea to sew the pleats down. I normally wouldn't have given this pattern a second glance because empire-waisted things make me look pregnant, but now I want to get it and make a gorgeous-figre-flattering dress like yours.

Just lovely on you. The changes you made are really flattering for you. Of course you have a lovely figure to begin with!

Cindyann: I am not sure of the type of silk ! Isn't it a kind of tussah ? It has the smooth hand of a washed linen ... Too bad: I will have to go back to the fabric store on Saturday, and check the label one more time (Hee hee, an excuse to go back to the fabric store. As if I needed one ;-) Thanks for your comments everyone. I was so uncertain of the results ... Now that I have the agreement of "peers" (including some of my "PR idols"), I will wear it with confidence!

This dress really suits you. You've taken an already nice dress and made it Super! Your changes add that special touch that make it look stunning.

Superb dress for you. Lovely design, color, proportion. Oooh la la.

Stitching the pleats down longer is brilliant. I just finished this dress, and it's a little too big... I'm going to try stitching my pleats down to see if it helps. Your dress is just wonderful!

Your dress is beautiful-the changes you made really add to it; you look so elegant! Thanks for the inspiring review!

This is gorgeous and it looks great on you. I love your idea of sewing the pleats down.

Quelle belle robe! I really like the changes you made which have made me think (again) that maybe I *Need* this pattern in my already-vast collection.
cindyann said... (6/7/07 11:08 AM) Reply
I love your dress. What a great pattern! What kind of silk did you use?
KaraKai said... (6/7/07 10:18 AM) Reply
Lovely! Fits you perfectly :)

Very pretty, and you have the perfect type of figure for this style. You might want to start w/ a smaller skirt size next time if you took a bunch off.

What a beautiful dress and it certainly accentuates your little tiny waist. Great job.
Karine said... (6/7/07 8:52 AM) Reply
The dress is simply beautiful. I love the pleating - so much nicer than the pattern.
MelissaB in WA said... (6/7/07 8:22 AM) Reply
Your dress is gorgeous!!! I love how you lengthened the pleats - I'm going to have to try that on my next version. Stunning!

Great idea on the pleating. I think I will try that on my version and see how it comes out. Maybe I won't look so pregnant. BTW, it looks great on you!

Nice interpretation!

Outstanding! Comparisons to Audrey Hepburn may be getting a bit cliche, but you are the spitting image.

Hello - Your dress is gorgeous. I was wondering if someone wanted to add sleeves to the shirt, do you think that would be possible?

Gorgeous dress! I love the alterations. Thanks for sharing :)

Sold out for me too when I tried to buy it. I *really* want it now. Stitching down the pleats is inspired. Your waist looks teeny this way.

Divine dress! I like how you sewed the pleats down. It's very flattering.
CarolynGM said... (6/6/07 9:50 PM) Reply
Great decision to stitch those pleats down. This makes the style much more flattering to your figure than the original pattern. Beautifully done. I look forward to more reviews from you.

Man, I already wanted this pattern the last time there was a sale on simplicity and it was out. Now I *really* want it.
