This style suits you so well, and the colours are beautiful. Well done!

SO flattering, and that fabric just MAKES it. And very clever, too, that the neckline works either way. Thanks for a great review!

I just love serendipity and a reversable dress definitely qualifies. This is wonderful & I actually prefer the cowl in back. Pretty fabric, too.

Lovely dress, either way around! If you don't want to use the fabric as a matching shrug (might be too much?) why don't you try the BWOF Princess Seamed Top 06-2007-110 ? I reviewed it in stretch lace which I lined with flesh coloured stretch lining and it's a lovely fit. Would suit your fabric well. I'll keep a look out to see what you do!

Lovely dress, like the cowl neck on the back surprise.

very successful! I have a very similiar figure to you. Nice to see curvy (but thin) women wear close knit dresses. Anyway, as to the remainder, make a knit top, maybe an overlay type of top you can wear over a camisole. There are tons of types. Butterick 4606 or something like that.

I love that "reversible" surprise... and I think the cowl looks gorgeous on your back as well as your front!

Beautiful dress - looks great on you.

I think your dress turned out really well. Especially that it is reversible! Maybe you could make a shrug with the extra. Great fabric too.

Nice dress Kathleen! I like the cowl at the back actually, this would be a neat way to resolve a gaping cowl problem! I'm sure I have a pattern with a deep back cowl floating around. To do a forward shoulder alteration, cut a small bit off the front pattern piece shoulder & tape it to the edge of the back pattern piece shoulder. This gives the back shoulder strap more length & the seam shifts forward without changing the drafting anywhere else.
