I very much enjoyed reading this review as I have long been interested in this pattern. Perhaps 'one day' I will try it. The pattern has really nice clean lines. I can see why it would become a favorite.

What a classy dress. I've never heard of Go Pattern either, but it sounds like they'll do well if they have such good instructions.

Beautiful and flattering is certainly how I'd describe this dress on you. No wonder you got so many complements. I had seen this pattern, but I really had no idea how fabulous it is. Really nice detailing.
