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

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?

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!

Hey Hot Mama, that dress is just stunning on you. It lookslike time for dinner and dancing to celebrate such a gorgeous creation!

Great looking dress! I haven't thought about maxi's since 1976! Seeing you in yours makes me want one too!! Beautiful...

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.

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

You look fabulous - a stunning dress and you pull if off so well.
Rhonda Noah said... (7/11/08 9:48 PM) Reply
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....

You look hot!

please share you "sorting out of sew in bra cups". Some of us still haven't mastered that one. Looks fantastic on you.

This came out GREAT! And I love the way you centered the big motifs. I never have the patience for that sort of thing.

What a beautiful dress that fits you like a dream! Really nice placement of fabric, too!
Karen6790 said... (7/7/08 10:42 AM) Reply
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."

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.
Heatherrique said... (7/5/08 9:10 PM) Reply
Cidell, this is definitely a beautiful work of art! You can wear anything and look sensational!

Gorgeous fabric and it made up very nicely as a maxi dress. Looks great on you!

Oh I love this and you look just superb in it - way to go girl!!

SUPER. Great use of the print, and happy for you that the fabric arrived in time.

Ooh, I missed this on first posting! Very cool! It reminds me of the Nicole Miller patterned maxis.
StyleGirl68 said... (7/5/08 3:22 PM) Reply
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!

Okay my jaw just dropped!!!!!!! I have to get this fabric now. Lovely and the little one says hi again ;)

Cidell, you always blow me away with your designs. Another winner!

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?

Awesome dress.

stunning! I've actually got the other view of this on the board right now...
cindy-lou said... (7/4/08 10:07 PM) Reply
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!
Sew4Fun said... (7/4/08 10:06 PM) Reply
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.
SueV said... (7/4/08 9:33 PM) Reply
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 :)

Wow -- you sew fast. The dress is perfect, and Ann is a really nice name. I love the way you arranged the motifs.
