Love this dress. Is there anyway to get a hold on some of these past patterns from BWOF magazine. That dress is a winner especially with your fabric choice.

It looks so cute on you and you're right, it's very figure flattering. Great dress.

Another great version of this dress! This pattern seems to be turning into the 116 wrap top of the spring--universally flattering on everyone. ;)

Your dress turned out wonderful. You look very nice and curvy in all the right places. This is a dress worth making more than once, if you find the right fabric for it again.

Wonderful! A dress for pears! Yours looks terrific. Thanks for the warning on the neckline method.

Beautiful dress! I just love your fabric! Oh, nice recovery on the neckline, too. (I've also been having that problem lately...ugh) If you do make this again, check out your resale shops for an old belt. Lots of fun buckles to be had! :)

Very pretty! With all the great BWOF reviews I read here, I might have to finally break down and get a subscription.

It looks very good on you, too. You have sewn a dress that compliments your figure.

Very flattering, I think this one is a winner. Perhaps you could use a vintage broach instead of the buckle?

Great dress, and it looks terrific on you.

Really cute dress. Thanks for the tip about stabilising the neckline... I never knew you could use straight tape on a knit. Mine always stretch out so this is a wonderful tip. Thanks.

You could replace the buckle by a fabric ring like for the top, it'd be cool and match perfectly..
