That fabric was meant to be that dress - you know it when you saw it in the store. Glad you and your dress had a happy birthday. Many more, and many more dresses to go with.

Happy Birthday and congratulations on your beautiful and fun party dress. I love your fabric choice. Your version is far more stunning than Burda's.

Wow, terrific dress. This is one of those patterns I've got in the pipeline so I'm glad to read your thorough review. I adore the style and it's so sexy. Love your fabric. Don't worry, girlfriend. Your boobs will expand as you hit menopause and you'll fill that top in nicely ;-). And isn't shopping for fabric in Paris fun? Happy birthday.
