I just picked this pattern up. You are the second reviewer to say that they omitted the zipper, and any time I can avoid zippers, I do, so I really appreciate the heads-up! It's a beautiful dress. You did a marvelous job- it enhances your figure beautifully.

I love this on you. It's good to know it works on full busts, I always have problems in the area. Great job!

I love this dress on you. I have been looking for another knit dress to try. After seeing the lovely job you have done on this I am off to buy this pattern.

That is fantastic!!! Wow, I'm looking for a really great pattern to make a red dress out of, and that fabulous number of yours just might be the ticket! Thanks for the tip on the zipper too.

Oooh, this looks gorgeous! I was considering making this dress in some red jersey for Christmas, and now I think I will make it for sure. It looks great, and I'm glad that the front-drape bit isn't too difficult. Thanks for a great review!

The dress looks beautiful. I am picking up my hobby again of sewing. I saw this pattern and fell in love with the dress. Thank you so much for your helpful hints, particularly the fba. I can't wait to sew this one!

Hi Melody. I don't suppose you could get your hubby to take more pictures of you in the dress, could you? Would love to see it from other angles. Bought the pattern tonight when I realized it was on sale. Jill

I just picked up this pattern at the JoAnn's sale this weekend because I love your version so much. We have similar figures, and if my version looks even half as good on me as yours does on you, I'll be ecstatic!

Great dress and great review. I love your info on the fba on your blog. I need to do this and so I am happy that you figured out how to do it first! I was looking for a pattern for a little black dress and I think I found it!
