The dress looks fabulous. I don't know that I would have thought to use this pattern like this - great interpretation. (Don't forget to change this review from a WIP to a finished review so that it's eligible in the contest.)

Lovely dress. I've always liked this style. Your fabric is fantastic, and your print placement works very well. Love your technique using the muslin to create a one-piece with darts dress. Very informative and creative. (Nice flowers in your picture, also.)

I love the elegance of this dress. The fabric is very feminine and works perfectly with the design. I can see this being a very versatile dress that you'll get a lot of use of.

What a great, versatile way to use this pattern and this print. I love you way of using the muslin as a pattern sso that you don't break the design of the fabric.

I like this pattern and it's had universally good reviews (which is a good sign - this could go very wrong with the low back if badly drafted). I must get it. Yours is beautifully made and fitted - you make it look easy (I always think it's so unfair that the better you do something difficult the easier it looks!) Can we see the other dress you made from this pattern? It sounds stunning.

Your stunning dress is both elegant and chic, and the black and white silk pique enhances its sleek lines. It's truly lovely and like everyone else, I'd love to see your initial version. Exquisite, Lily

I remember flipping through the Vogue pattern book and always stopping to look at this one - it's eyecatching and classic. I love your fun take on this design, and your method to control the print is brilliant! Thanks for this review!
