Your dress is stunning! It is the one that made me decide to give this pattern a try. I appreciate the good advice given in your review. I am in the middle of this project right now and have been paying extra attention based on your review. I think it is saving me some extra headaches. Thanks again!

I like your fabric and the dress turned out really well. I just made this dress in red polka dot cotton with a red bodice. I didn't do the underlining and it's fine. I found the v top of the bodice front a problem.

Great dress this was a great review. I found the same fabric Thursday at JoAnn's and I have had the pattern for awhile. When I got the fabric I went straight to the pattern and was determined this was the dress. Hope mine look as nice as this one and the one you're going to make because with that fabric it has to be stunning.

Thanks for such wonderful comments everyone! It was freezing outside and the wind was blowing but it looks much better for a photo than inside. I'm ready for spring!

That is just too cute. I didn't realize the bodice had that modesty panel in it - makes the deep V more wearable. Love what you've done with it.
