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!

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!

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

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!

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!

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.

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.

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 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.
