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.

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

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

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

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.

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!!

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!

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!

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!

Wow! What a way to work a pattern out! I love all of the versions of this dress!

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.

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