Ummm, I hope you'll translate my blouse for me. Si? Maybe I need to throw a dress-up party, you can schlep to Baltimore and wear your amazing dress. Or, you can *give* me your dress and I'll wear it all over town. Even to Giant.

Wow, your dress is so pretty and ethereal and the comparison shot is great! Haha, I think you succeeded in making your singleness a great mystery!!

Wow, what a wonderful dress. Thanks for the very thorough review. Your dress looks absolutely gorgeous on you, love the colour.

I doubt you'll be able to stay single for long with that dress and that sense of humor...Love the pic, you look better than the original!

Nice work! The color is stunning on you!

I love reading your reviews! The dress is gorgeous and your comparison picture was so fun - great modeling job! ;-) You're not going to be single for long wearing that "million dollar" dress - thanks for the fun and informative review! :-)

JuliaS said...
LOL! I love your shot with the magazine picture. :) This turned out really fantastic.

cindy-lou said...
Now, THAT'S a dress! Wowsie-wow. Part of its beauty is that it looks deceptively simple-- but it's not (as your review illustrates beautifully). Yes, you've gotta wear that one again. And again. (BTW, I bet at the party, single YOU walked in and all the married guys stared, mouths agape, and all their wives got secretly pi**ed that you looked so hot...) ;)

You really are too cute. Great job on your review! Great finished outfit for the party. You definitely live a different lifestyle than I do; people I know wear jeans to birthday parties. I like your outfit much better.

Gorgeous dress and great review!

OP Gal said...
Wonderful review. Thanks for all the details. You look as fabulous as the model in your dress. Your "perpetual singleness" is truly a mystery. With your sense of humor, sense of style and beauty, you're sure to be stitching up that wedding dress soon!

Nicegirl I'm sure you felt like a million bucks because you definitely looked like it. Your dress is amazing!!!

I just love the comparison shot. Thanks to your review I want to check out these Patrones magazines.

Wow how cute. It looks very comfortable too. You must have huge closets cause you sure sew up a storm! And everything is so cute!

Puddin Pop said...
I love the dress and it looks a great deal like the one you were copying, except on her the straps are attached further back. When I saw it with the shrug, you look like a million bucks.

I love this dress and I can see it really took you some time to figure it out - but I would say it was well worth it!

You look fabulous in pink! This is such a fun dress, and a great result for having such inscrutable instructions.

fuzzygalore said...
Wow! a fabulous copying job, a fabulous job putting it together (particularly like the lining the back), and fabulous results..

dingyadi said...
that is lovely. You've done a fantastic job. You look fabulous in it. I've recently ordered my first Patrones magazine thru the internet so I'm interested in seeing what it is like.

OOOH! OOOH! two fab dresses. Gotta put 'em in the contest, girl!

Like Cindy-Lou, my first reaction to your dress was oo oo oo oo OOOOO! How unfair that you got all the sewing-cleverness genes while the rest of us have to sit back in awe at your fabulosity.

Mufffet said...
WOW...another great dress...I love the print one in the pic and maybe like it better than the pink! Who knows - both are lovely.

Two great looking dresses.

Love the fabric combination on this one - this is definitely a great pattern, it works well in both fabrics, which to me is always the proof. You're going to get your Greek shipping heir yet on this vacation!
