I wish I could have seen the earlier dress to compare the two, but the latest version looks wonderful and very flattering on you. Great job!

Sandra, I know how disappointing it is to complete a garment that just doesn't suit, particularly when you've used expensive fabric. I really hope that you know someone larger than yourself so you get a good feeling giving such a pretty dress to someone who'll love it. -Lily

Very pretty and on-trend, too bad you don't like it on you! Whoever gets it should be very happy.

Love your fabric -- too bad it didn't work out for you. I sometimes get those vibes even before I cut but I rarely listen! ;>)

The fabric is awesome -- could you make it into a skirt, at least, to be able to use it? Also: Vogue 8379 is a great wrap dress, and people seem to have had a lot of luck with it (self included) -- might be worth trying!

Darla - I too had visions of wearing this dress with some fabulous pointed-toe red pumps. Very "Stacey and Clinton" don't you think?

Could you make it a tunic length and wear it over a skirt or pants?

Sandra: this happens to everyone: how many times I start out thinking something is going to be great, and then I, like you, give it away because it "just wasn't me". The good news is that we always learn something in the process. Looking forward to seeing your next project.

Sorry, the dress didn't work out. It really turned out lovely (I can see red accessories with it.). The fabric is great.

I feel your pain. I understand your "feeling" 'cause I get it too. Sorry that you don't like the finished project, but I'm glad that you have someone who can use it. The fabric is really lovely.

Fabulous dress and such a bummer that it was too big. Glad someone else will get to enjoy it.
