I think this style is very good on you!!! I like the colors and your work is great, as usual!

I love what you did with this pattern!! Have you tried letting out the princess seams a little in front? Since you're wearing a plus size dress :-) you should do what we do - leave the fabric a little loose so it just skims the curves without clinging. Not that I think you need any camouflage, but it might make you feel more comfortable.

I was beginning to think I had hallucinated that dress! Still love the twist collar and the fabric, and of course you are way too hard on yourself - there's no way that dress accentuates your belly. No. Way.

Cute dress. It is a nice style, and it certainly looks fine on you (although I agree, other styles are even better, but it is certainly very wearable!). Good job on 'scaling' the pattern to non-plus size.

This dress is very cute. I am jealous that you got to go to Paris. Plus other commenters are right. You are too hard on yourself.

I think the dress looks really cute on you. I'm sure you got many looks in Paris - the good kind. What do you mean about your belly? I can barely see it.
