Very attractive dress! You wear it wonderfully!

Kbenco, I'm so glad you tried this pattern, as both the dress and top look just smashing on you! I really like the shorter length dress on you as it showcases your pretty, shapely legs. I'm so pleased that my review was of some value to you, but more pleased that you got such a flattering result from a pattern that I've come to like so well. You look beautiful in both pieces. -Lily

Wow! So flattering. You look terrific in the dress and the top.

Kbenco, yes, this is very flattering and both the top and the dress look great on you. You've chosen fabulous colours which give both garments a stylish look. Great work!

Wow, it came out great! I love the top with the skirt, too.

Great dress, and it suits you. I'm always impressed when I see a nice garment made from this pattern. I made the dress from the wrong fabric, and it is truly hideous. I guess I should post pictures as one of those "instructive failures."

Very flattering dress. I bought this pattern when it first came out but still haven't started the top I was planning to make. Thanks for reminding me how great it can look.

Wow, you look like a million bucks in this dress (AND the top, by the way), very shapely and very classy, as well. i LOVE that color.

Looks fantastic on you! Beautiful dress.

Your dress looks fantastic. I made the same pattern and ended up cutting off the skirt and turning it into a top because jersey dress plus tights on a chubby girl just results in "skirt creep!!" But I would definitely consider making it again as just a top.

Great dress and top. Thanks for the good review.

Your dress looks great! I have this pattern but haven't made it, yet. I think I need to push this pattern up on my to sew list! Thanks for your great review!
