Love this dress. I bought the pattern for my daughter and I think I may get this one for myself too. Very nice.

Yes, it's a swayback alteration. This dress is beautiful and inspirational. I love the details and it seems to fit so well.

Beautiful dress - and I believe the name of the alteration you describe is "swayback adjustment", and I have to do it on all my dresses and blouses these days. I didn't have to do this in years gone by - I wonder what's changed about my figure other than weight, gravity, etc. etc.

Wow, this looks great on you! The pleats and the bright fabric you chose really make the dress! I want this pattern now.

Oh, love the colour. I noticed that you seem to have sewn or tacked the pleats. I'm just starting to work on this dress and I like the way your's looks and would like to do the same thing.

Great dress! It looks better on you than on the pattern envelope!

Wow, yours looks so good. I've been struggling with this pattern all week. I guess its just not for my figure.

This is beautiful on you! Just this morning I was thinking that I need to pull this pattern out and actually sew it. I've been fiddling with the FBA on it. Your version has just inspired me to complete mine - except now I want a cranberry red one with a colorful sash just like you, LOL!
