Vicki, nice dress which fits well. I like the way you used the checks on the bias. This style suits you. You should sew another in spring colours. :)

I just came across this review as I catalogued some of my patterns and I'm so glad I did! Your dress is spectacular! I'm moving this one up in the queue and I might just have to steal your idea of making it into a jumper. L-0-V-E---I-T!!

It's glorious on you, and nice in a subdued plaid.

I just review this dress as well and wish I had ready your review first. I think if I had cut my midriff band on the bias it would have given me more breathing room! Yours is lovely and looks very professional.
