It looks beautiful on you! I'll be using the same size and I am so excited to hope I might get such good results!

Really lovely dress! I agree with everyone else that it's very flattering. I'll have to check that pattern out and get some of that clear elastic!

Nice dress! Great hints Thank you for the review, it is great to see a reviewer wearing a plus size pattern. Maybe I'll try it now.

Great review. I too have had issues with stretching and gaping necks and used the elastic as you have. Dress looks good on you and well done for your first review.

Very nice! That's a good idea, too, with the elastic around the neckline.

That dress emphasizes your beautiful figure. Lucky you. It's beautiful and you got the fit perfect.

Very pretty and the fit appears to be perfect. I am taking note of the elastic tip for the neck edge.

Congratulatoins! What a pretty result! Nice choice of pattern and fabric. It made up nicely and is quite flattering. I think everyone is searching for that perfect pattern and you have certainly found your! A nice deep red would be great for the holidays.... OK, time is short, but I bet you would look stunning in a deep red.

Lovely dress and very flattering on you. Yes, make more. Thanks for the info on neckline renovation. You encourage me to work harder to master how to write my first review.

Beautiful dress and photo Cody !!! I am glad you managed to solve the neckline problem with the clear elastic. Definitely make more of this one. Congratulations on writing your first review !!!!! It has prompted me to dust off this pattern and make the dress.

Very nice! What I do if the neckline is too low is to wear a cami underneath.

Stunning. Is the fabric from Australia's Spotlight?
