I love your dress with the alterations you made. You look great in it! Your comments about fit are so validating -- I'm 5'1" and had so many problems with the fit, but agree this is a gorgeous design.

I missed your initial posting. What a magnificent effect on you. This dress is simple and so elegant. Wonderful choice of fabric and contrasting band.

I see everyone is making it smaller but I made it the normal size for me and it seems ok but the back could have been a bit smaller. No idea how to make it tighter fitting now though as I have sewen the skirt on already! I made the long halter.

I'm without words, your dress (and you for that matter) look gorgeous! I'm so behind in reviews, but glad I caught this one. Great work Eve!

I want this pattern and that fabric so I can copy you! Wow, the floor length is stunning and I love how you lined the bodice. Great stuff here!

Love your dress! Your son's right-- it's very flattering. And I need a little in the booty department so maybe it will be a good style for me. Thanks for the great review! (P.S.-- 'Burda Boobs on Parade'... *hee!*)

So pretty! And it makes you look so long and thin and gorgeous - I'm jealous! Adore the fabric, it's PERFECT for the style. And thanks so much for such a comprehensive review!

This looks fabulous! The design is so perfect for you and you pull it off beautifully. All your extra work in the fit and construction really shows through in the finished product.

Lovely, Eve! I'm so loving the Maxi trend this summer. The back is especially fetching. {snif} wish I were young enough to pull this off.

What a great dress! I never even noticed the back of this design. If these are still in style next spring, you've inspired me to make one.

Wow, this looks amazing on you! You really wear long dresses (and dresses in general) very well. Another great project and another great review!

I'm with DS - that's a lot of pretty. Great dress, thanks for all the extra info on what you did. And why is it that no one tells you about shoulder seams anymore? Beautiful job.

This is beautiful on you. Gorgeous!

Eve, this is stunning. You look slim as a twig and six feet tall; very svelte. The back interest of this dress with its slim turned ties holds just the right amount of ahhh value. Your review is excellent and explains, in detail, your alterations, as well as how you effected them. Thanks for sharing this beauty. Lovely, Lily

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress. I just ordered the pattern. Thanks for all the tips. Now I have to go look up what shoulder stabilizing means.
