I love JoAnn's $1.99 and $0.99 pattern sales! Great dress!

I am simply astonished at this review. Until I found PR a few weeks ago I thought I was the only one in the world who had to go through major alterations. But not this many! No more wallowing in self-pity anymore! Great dress, by the way!

Now that you've started down the path to making dresses, you are in trouble! :) There will be soooo many more to come now that you know you can make what you can't find in the stores! Take it from me, I know! Nice dress, btw!!!

Thanks for such a helpful review! Your dress is very pretty! I really need to get this S-dart thing figured out--I think it'd help me a ton with below-the-bust fit...

This must be the week for S darts LOL! Your dress turned out great. This pattern has been in my stack for a while now. Maybe I'll get to it soon.

Nice looking dress. It looks like it will be cool and comfortable this summer.

You look great in your pretty summer print dress. It looks like so much more than the simple little pattern it is. Your sandals and necklace really are a nice addition. Pretty!

Such a lovely summer look - the fabric print is gorgeous, the fit is so good and I too really love that necklace - it completes your outfit so well.

This is a lovely dress on you. The floral pattern looks nice. You mentioned in a previus review that you like floral prints but sometimes they don't look well on you. I think this floral works because it is in all in the same colorway, not the contrast. That is what I find so flattering about this one on you as well as how it fits. Very helpful information you provided. Stay cool!!

Nice dress Sherril - like you I am planning on adding a dress or two to my wardrobe - you are one ahead of me

Very cute! That S-dart really helps turn this unfitted sack into a very flatterning dress! (So, are you going to enter it into the stash contest??)

This is such a lovely summer dress. With the fabric you chose and the alterations you made, it's perfect on you!

I like your version of this dress much better than the one on the envelope. Can't wait to see what else you can do with this pattern! Love your dress!

I like that "everything from a stash costs nothing" comment. I'll have to show it to my husband. ; ) I'm amazed at all the alterations you did, but they certainly paid off. The dress looks wonderful. Thanks for all the details.

Looks like a Maria dress - "I feel pretty, oh so pretty" - lovely work as always, and a most helpful review as well. Thanks!

Very, very pretty dress; lovely colour. Thanks for the reminder about the S dart and the caution about the small dart. I badly need some summer dresses, too. This pattern looks like it will be a real work-horse in your wardrobe now that you've got the adjustments done. Dresses are the coolest thing to wear in summer, imho. Sue

Sherril, this dress is stunning. Your alterations are perfect and seeing the pattern pieces really helped show how you did the adjustments. The fabric is just lovely and you look gorgeous.

I love this web site and enjoy reading the reviews. I was looking in particular though, for reviews on the jacket.
