Wow, both of your dresses look and fit great! I think the heavier knit does have a very slimming effect on you. Great job.

Your dresses and you look fabulous!!! I love the two I've made as well - it's a great pattern in my book. :-)

Fabulous dress on you, feminine and flattering.

Looks good on you! I made this a couple of weeks ago much the same as you did-raised the neckline, 16 bust and 20 hips. I also came to the conclusion that next time I would put in a center back seam and angle it a little for some more fabric over the rear.

I love a great smile to show how happy someone truly is. You dress is worth smiling over.

Great pattern. I like what you did with the neckline. This dress looks great on you.

This must run small - I'll check the finished measurements - because NO WAY does this look like the sizes you described. I think it looks great.

I agree that this looks smaller than described. Very flattering! I really like the cap sleeve and think that you should keep it; it is a nice proportion. Now that you know how to make it look perfect from all sides, make it up in a really nice knit and you will have THE perfect knit dress for you!

So glad to see this review. I have this pattern and some Chico knit for it. Glad to see that it needs a "meaty" knit, since that's what I have. I love this on you!

WOW! I think this is fabulous! I'm trying to figure out where the size 16 top, 18 waist and 20 hips are! It looks like and 8-10! Great job and the dress is STUNNING on you!
