Looks great on you! Glad you got the fabric in time.
7/4/08 7:51 PM
You look fabulous!! Great use of that fabric!
7/4/08 7:51 PM
Beautiful!! I love the way you chose to maximize the print.
7/4/08 8:09 PM
Gorgeous! Has a nice 70's feel without being overly retro.
7/4/08 8:19 PM
Wow -- you sew fast. The dress is perfect, and Ann is a really nice name. I love the way you arranged the motifs.
7/4/08 8:30 PM
What a striking dress with your fabric selection. You look so great!
7/4/08 8:39 PM
And that is why we sew! Stunning. Enjoy.
7/4/08 8:42 PM
Fabulous Cidell !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
7/4/08 8:45 PM
Absolutely stunning! Super job!
7/4/08 9:14 PM
Wow, I love it, the way you did the fabric, it's beautiful and looks great on you; when your done with it, I'll take it :)
7/4/08 9:33 PM
Great dress! It is very flattering on you and I like the style. (Much nicer than the maxi dresses my mother wore last time round. :) ) I also really like the way you used the print/stripes on the front. Glad you got your extra fabric.
7/4/08 10:06 PM
Okay. LOVE the dress! You lined it up perfectly, too. Very Kevin Christiana of you to skip the hem-- keeps it light and flowy (and easy to make!). I'm in line after Sue V for this one!
7/4/08 10:07 PM
stunning! I've actually got the other view of this on the board right now...
7/4/08 11:07 PM
Fabulous, Cidell, you look wonderful and great job on the fabric.
7/4/08 11:23 PM

FABULOUS dress!!! I just love this style but have yet to make one. Ironically, I had my hand on this one in stash the other day and thought, "Hmmm, wonder if I've already missed the boat on this trend?" Thanks for the nudge! I'll have to whip one up before the end of the season for sure. You think this could work w/ a halter-strap bra or is the back too low?
7/5/08 0:13 AM
Cidell, you always blow me away with your designs. Another winner!
7/5/08 0:29 AM
Okay my jaw just dropped!!!!!!! I have to get this fabric now. Lovely and the little one says hi again ;)
7/5/08 0:37 AM
FAAAAAAAAAAAAAANTASTIC! Love the use of the print in your design. :o)
7/5/08 1:02 AM
Hey gorgeous. only real stylish, classy ladies can pull of the maxi dress. You look straight out of a magazine! right on girl!
7/5/08 1:49 AM
You look awesome, and the photo is so professional!
7/5/08 2:40 AM
Beautiful work, dress and you.
7/5/08 6:20 AM
Cidell, you look absolutely gorgeous! What a fabulous job you've done with this print - so professional! Everything about it is so stylish. I'm very impressed.
7/5/08 8:12 AM
The dress looks amazing! You did a great job.
7/5/08 8:17 AM
Magnifique ! You look wonderful. This is a really great review as well. So you put on weight behind your ears ? ;-) Common! This dress is a master piece on you.
7/5/08 9:56 AM
That dress is dead cute. Thanks for sharing it!!!
7/5/08 10:16 AM
Love the bias cut! It makes the fabric sing!
7/5/08 10:18 AM
Fabulous dress. Wonderful use of the design of the fabric. You look great.
7/5/08 10:45 AM
You've done it again - another beautiful creation
7/5/08 11:18 AM
It's perfection on you!
7/5/08 11:32 AM
Love your review!! LOL And great, great dress. Pattern, fabric, EVERYTHING!!
7/5/08 11:36 AM
I LOVE this Dress on you simply stunning! When I clicked on the picture, I saw that I have the very same fabric! I swear, it is the most beautiful fabric I have ever seen!
7/5/08 1:06 PM
Smashing look on you! And great review. You are amazing.
7/5/08 1:08 PM
I actually have had this pattern for some time and was not sure if it would be flattering. Based on your review and photos, I am now going to be making this one very soon! Thanks so much for the inspiration. Your dress is gorgeous!
7/5/08 3:22 PM
Ooh, I missed this on first posting! Very cool! It reminds me of the Nicole Miller patterned maxis.
7/5/08 4:29 PM
SUPER. Great use of the print, and happy for you that the fabric arrived in time.
7/5/08 4:30 PM
Oh I love this and you look just superb in it - way to go girl!!
7/5/08 4:42 PM
Gorgeous fabric and it made up very nicely as a maxi dress. Looks great on you!
7/5/08 8:03 PM
Cidell, this is definitely a beautiful work of art! You can wear anything and look sensational!
7/5/08 9:10 PM
I LOVE your reviews Cidell! And I LOVE this dress! I, too made a dress for the Fourth and was ripping things out up to Friday morning. Ann's fabric is gorgeous (what else) and your use of it is, as usual, spot on. Next on my list for sure.
7/5/08 9:48 PM
7/5/08 11:24 PM
As always, Outstanding!
7/6/08 7:33 AM
OK, this dress rules. Simple as that. Great job with the print, and the style is perfect for you!
7/6/08 4:47 PM
Beautiful dress and it looks wonderful on you!!!
7/6/08 7:13 PM
Your dress came out beautiful!!
7/6/08 10:21 PM
Absolutely gorgeous, and even better because of all you had to go through to get it done in time. I'm with you on the no-hemming on knit dresses, I've made 2 now and I've given up even saying "oh, I just haven't gotten around to it yet."
7/7/08 10:42 AM
What a beautiful dress that fits you like a dream! Really nice placement of fabric, too!
7/7/08 7:12 PM
This came out GREAT! And I love the way you centered the big motifs. I never have the patience for that sort of thing.
7/8/08 11:49 AM
please share you "sorting out of sew in bra cups". Some of us still haven't mastered that one. Looks fantastic on you.
7/9/08 12:52 PM
You look hot!
7/9/08 9:09 PM
Fabulous! This dress is so versatile, I can see it at a casual outing as well as a more formal one. Or, for just sipping a glass of champagne while waiting for Sunday brunch to be ready....
7/11/08 9:48 PM
You look fabulous - a stunning dress and you pull if off so well.
7/12/08 5:51 PM
Okay, I am so late to this review, but your dress is gorgeous. I'm a maxi dress fan too! Can you ever have too many? And I totally love the no hemming idea! If you don't need to, why put yourself through it? LOL
7/14/08 8:57 AM
Chiming in on the Amazing Looking part. I just love the engineered prints and what you've done with the placement. Raising my hand in the corner, wanting one.
7/15/08 10:52 AM
Great looking dress! I haven't thought about maxi's since 1976! Seeing you in yours makes me want one too!! Beautiful...
7/23/08 5:34 PM
What a BEAUTIFUL dress!!! You look WONDERFUL in it and it fits GREAT!!! Your fabric is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!!
7/24/08 7:46 PM
Hey Hot Mama, that dress is just stunning on you. It lookslike time for dinner and dancing to celebrate such a gorgeous creation!
7/28/08 7:03 AM
Those colors are perfect on you!
8/1/08 12:30 PM
Looks great on you! I've never been into patterned fabric but this makes it obvious that it can make a dress quite smashing. Great job!
8/1/08 5:43 PM
OMG! TOTALLY CUTE - LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE (did I say LOVE?) it.
8/21/08 1:45 AM
8/31/08 3:29 AM
Great Review, Great fitting job!
2/1/09 10:39 AM
I love it, the fabric is perfect. I'm looking for nice boho fabric to make several maxi dresses out of; do you have any suggestions?
3/9/09 9:31 PM
This is now on my to do list , GORGEOUS !!
4/4/09 3:18 AM
Gorgeous! Your friend is so lucky!
4/6/09 11:30 AM

7/10/09 10:05 AM
I was going to make view D, but after seeing your dress, I'm going for a maxi, it's just gorgeous, and the sunny colour suits your skin so well
