Yeah! This looks so darling on you! I also like your supermodel action pose (Watch out Gisele Bundchen)! Great job on this, Cindy Lou! You are convincing me to try Burda WOF! Thanks!

You look absolutely adorable! Congratulations on your first Burda Magazine project. i just finished my first one too and am now addicted. You "zenned" this dress and made it happen. SO worth it!!!!!

Great job on this dress! I also made this, so watch out for my review soon. I'm so glad to know that it works out in a wool jersey-- I bet the fit is impeccable!

Wow! Wow! Wow Girl! You look like a million bucks in this dress. What a great job you did! Also, you are so good at that self portrait thing. I never can do that.

This is such a great dress. I love that you and I both got hit with "must make dress" in NY, and both got our fabrics at Paron's. I'm definitely going to do a summer version, too. This was a great result for a first Burda project - congrats.

OMG! You are driving me to the edge of BWOF-land. Must refrain. Must refrain. That is a great dress, and your hair is FABULOUS too, BTW!!! Love the whole look!!

First thing I noticed is that your hair looks really great! The dress is awesome, too!! It's on my list of things to sew but I can never quite get there. Your review is inspiring!

Killer dress on a killer body! Your review was so specific and detailed, I feel like I know just what alterations I need for myself. Very, very tempting. -Lily

Great dress. It is much easier to wear it without a zipper. I hope you will wear it with pleasure. :)

OP Gal said...
Love the review. I think you've got those nicegirl poses down pat. The dress is beautiful and doesn't look simple to construct. I'm glad you got that to-die-for fabric. It looks great made up into that dress.

Great job. The drape of your fabric is a perfect choice for this style.

Awesome dress, fantastic hairs, you looks fab! You are very brave to make this dress in knit. I can't believe that it can be pull over without zipper but still get the fitted bodice. I agree it is great dress for young people and over 40 like us too. It seems like we like the same style of fashion. May I suggest you to sew my very first pattern that Burdastyle uploaded yesterday. It's called JJ, a blouse with ruffles.

What a fantastic dress Cindy Lou! I have that on my *must* make list too. Great job on conquering BWOF!!!! I'm so behind in reading reviews, I will go check out what else you've made right away. P.S. Love your Burda poses too! :-)

ohhh, I want one too! That is fabulous on you. Great detail in the review too. And... I love your hair.
