I love all your versions of this dress. It is so flattering on you, and that retro cherry fabric is ADORABLE.

I love this - it looks so comfy. Congrats on a TNT pattern. You gotta love that.

Michelle, another beautiful version from your TNT pattern! I agree that a change of fabric gives another different look! Very versatile! You did a good job making knock-offs of those designer dresses that I recall seeing in one of those high fashion magazines! I would love you to wear any one of these in person!

I like all your versions of this, and they all look good on you. I guess my favorite is the cherry print with the red piping.

It looks great. I've been meaning to tell you that you have such a warm and engaging smile.

These dresses are adorable! Each one is so unique and summery. I also loved learning about how you began your adventure in sewing. You're making your own now! Bravo!

Thanks for the great review! I'm about your height, so I bought this pattern b/c of your comment about it not needing many petite adjustments!

How PRETTY! Your fabric is just PERFECT for this little dress, and you look so CUTE in it. :o) Just think, you can have ALL the custom made dresses you want now. :o)

Second comment: Look at this link It shows a dress in the exact type pattern by Oscar De La Renta for a mere $4500 plus. Way to go!

Something about this dress makes you look slimmer -- it's not-too-tight-but-just-skimming-the-body, the happy fabric, the happy smile -- it's just GREAT!!

Oh your wonderful summer dress is SOoooo Mary Engelbreit ( the artists) It made me feel good just to look at the photo. I love what the red piping did for the dress.

Great summer dress. I have this pattern an I'm 5 inches taller than you, so thanks for the tips about lengthening.

Sensational looking sundress! You wear this style with pizazz! You really made this dress look more dashing than what's on the NL envelope!

Adorable fabric and it looks really cute on you!

Your sundress looks so comfortable. I love to wear dresses during the summer heat. I must look at this pattern for myself.

Wow, this is a really cute sundress. I had this pattern in my hands but didn't buy it and seeing how lovely yours turned out I do regret that decision. Also, NL's sizes seem to run awfully small so I wondered how hard it would be to alter the pattern. Your dress looks great on you and the fabric is a real eye catcher. Thanks for the review and motivation.
