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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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!

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! ;>)

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

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

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!
