Wow, what a groovy review, I feel like putting on some music and sew! Aside this you look great in your beautiful dress and the colors are very flattering!

This dress is very flattering on you. Great, fun(ky) review, too, with perfect song-to-sewing matches! (Though I think quite-a-bit-younger sewers might be a little puzzled.)

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous dress on you! Glad you didn't need to make too many Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes to get such a great fit!

I can see why your mom thought you were even slimmer and trimmer than usual in this dress. It's SO flattering, you've almost convinced me even I could wear this style. It's just beautiful on you. A great review AND trip down memory lane. :o)

This is probably my all-time favorite dress pattern and your version is HOT (or should I say, ", hot hot")!!! I couldn't agree more with your review...lots of cutting, lots of stitching, and lots of compliments afterward making it all worthwhile!!! Great job and a happy little review! :)

I absolutely love it!!! That goes for your dress AND your review! First of all, this dress really does look fabulous on you and you've done a great job sewing. Next, all I can say is WOW, what a fantastic review. I have MORE THAN A FEELING that with this pattern, YOU REALLY GOT ME. When it comes to sewing, DON'T STOP because your work is HOT STUFF and in this dress, YOU SHOULD BE DANCING!

The dress is gorgeous! I've been wanting to make this dress too, but have been stopped by Vogue's little icons that say it's flattering for every body type *except* mine- the triangle. I'm short AND pear-shaped. Has anybody with this figure type made the dress? I'd welcome opinions, even votes against. Thanks

Cute dress! It's really a good style for you.

Thanks for the sweet comments! Oh Karen8320, I adore your extended REMIX! You have a way of "Expressing Yourself" and it's "Just What I Needed" to get through any day! ;-)... SMWKnits, I think this wrap style would look great on you! It's so nice to work with knits that have a nice drape and flatter any figure!
