Very cute! I almost bought a dress like this today, but then I remembered I'd seen a pattern like it - good to see it turned out really nicely!

What a wonderful 'copy'(only better!) of the original!

Mmmm...What a groovalicious dress! The pattern illustration makes it look kind of sack-like, but your version and narcissa's are anything but. Terrific!!!

Looks much better on you than the pattern reflects. Very much like the Macy's dress

Looks great on you, and lucky that the pattern went on sale right after you found it.

You look so retro! This is definitely a style that suits you.

Great dress! I'd say you've given Macy's a run for their money. :o)

Your dress is actually a lot nicer than the inspiration dress, I think. I just came home from the Joann's sale on Simplicity and I passed on that pattern, precisely because I couldn't tell what it would be like from the envelope. Now I'm kicking myself, and might go back tomorrow!

Love the dress. That fabric is awesome on you--it's so fresh and cheerfu.

Oh, so cute and trendy!

I used a fusible knit interfacing. My material really needed it since it was thinish and slinky like on the backside (it behaved wonderfully with some interfacing though). As for bras - I would suggest a strapless!

Too cute, I love it!

WOW ! Cool print, I love it !
MelissaB in WA said... (7/23/07 10:05 AM) Reply
Love it!!! Two questions, 1) did you interface the neckband, if so with what (fusible knit interfacing?) and 2) is it all all bra friendly?
