I love the seamstress's adaptation on the go. Much like my sewing. Creative adaptation! And it is a lovely finished dress. I would taper all belt loops for a nice top finish. She might like a princess seaming to mesh with those lovely pockets. Thanks for a good review. Happy stitching to you! SparkleSew.

I forgot to mention this in the edit. The squint is because the sun is glaring off the icy snow. The white stuff that looks like dog hair is snow. :)

True, now we can see clear picture of your lovely dress in sunlight, very flattering on you! Great fit too!

I've admired this pattern since I first saw it and I think the pique is perfect for it! Just love your dress! As squilts mentioned, do a diagonal stitch (or two) to turn the corners to make them pointy...doesn't sound like it should work but it does! You've tempted me to buy this pattern! :)

This is a very flattering dress on you. And you executed it wonderfully. I bet you will use this pattern again and again. It works!

Great dress! I think you should consider the 'extra seam' for the others you make from this pattern.

What a classy job! I love the "extra seam", looks very professional, like it was meant to be there. Very cute dress!

The dress looks great - definitely a classic! The "extra" seam looks nice - I would have thought it was a design feature.

That is one rockin dress! I love it and it fits you perfectly! I love that it's a-line too, somehow I missed this pattern in the KS catalog.

Lovely look and the fit is wonderful. I always enjoy your reviews. You have a slim build like my daughter and I find your reviews very helpful for getting ideas for my daughter.

Retro, modern and glamourous! ;-}

The boatneck and sleek silhouette of this sleeveless dress is extremely flattering on you. It looks equally fetching with and without a shirt underneath, and your topstitched extra seam in the chest area is a design plus for this chic dress. -Lily

ocotillo, no, I didn't even trace the facings. I just used the front and back pattern pieces as a lining.

Very nice dress!!!

I love the lines and the details of this dress, and you look GREAT in it!

Great dress! I love the pocket and belt details, and the lining looks great! Did you end up using the facings?

Thanks for letting me know about the tip, I didn't check there. This was a center-zip but the technique would probably only be a little different.
squilts said... (2/21/08 11:46 AM) Reply
That looks awesome. I love the pocket/belt detail. I have read somewhere that if you take a diagonal stitch where the corner point is supposed to be, when you turn it, it will be more pointed that if you had sewn it square... Also, look in TIPS, for a tip from Nancywin on invisible zippers in lined dress. I used her tip when I did my sheath dress and it worked great!
