Let me just say I LOVE the purple!

NINE LAYERS? What, are they NUTS? You have more patience than I do (but don't get too cocky, because that can be said for just about anybody). :o) I like this dress on you, and that purple really adds some punch. I have a pattern that's similar to this (Vogue something, wardrobe) and I was actually thinking about making a summer nightgown out of the dress pattern -- ha! I bought it for the jacket and was also mulling over the dress, so now you've inspired me to consider it again. I certainly hope there's not NINE LAYERS to sew through though. Great job!

I think you look lovely in your dress. I just don't see how you could sew so nicely by hand. Must have been from all the hand sewing is horrendous! Good Job!

pretty purple! I have been curious about this pattern. I agree that it would drape better in a knit and shorten it!!

I wonder if you might have had better luck with a lightweight stable knit? Love the color you chose! The knit would drape a little more causing the dress to skim your body rather than stand away form it.

I LOVE the color of the fabric you chose...really pretty. You might feel better about the dress if you took some of the bulk away from your turn it into more of an A-line dress. I'm thinking about making it , but I don't know how well my suggestion would work.

I do like your dress, and I love your boots, too, btw! While I don't think it makes you look pregnant, I agree another style with more shape would flatter you more. I have this same problem, I can't wear a dress like that, it just emphasizes my short stature :o) Thanks so much for the review!
