So sorry about the tick bite. That sounds horrible. You look lovely in your outfit. Thanks for the review.

A beautiful look on you - wish that suit was mine. Sorry about your eye- hope it settles down soon so you wear this fabulous outfit somewhere special.

Perhaps I overlooked it, but I'd love to know the number of your McCalls TNT skirt. With 46 comments so far, what else is there to say -- liked in the magazine and gorgeous on you.

Great outfit! You look so great in the suit. I'm so sorry about the tick bite. I'm sure that you will find another opportunity to wear it.

Oh, that is SERIOUSLY disappointing! I would be crushed. Your suit is to-die-for and the color is delicious! Just love the whole thing. Thanks for the entertaining read!

Ouch! But before the tick I did have to look twice to see which one was you and which one was the model! Really you look pretty hot :)) Great outfit.

Fabulous outfit Frantic! I can't believe I have bought crushed taffeta in a lime green/black shot colour for the jacket and a plain version of the fabric for skirt! I see this as a sign I should get going on it for those Christmas parties.....

You DEFINITELY sew better than she does! Just the inspiration for my next MOB dress! Great review!

I am so glad you reviewed this. I want to make it too, I just need an occasion! You look fabulous. I love the twin photo, although I think the other twin needs some curves to really look good in that outfit.

Oh, WOW! You look GREAT in this outfit. It's just PERFECT. I think you look BETTER than the model, REALLY! :o) Beautiful!

Absolutely lovely ensemble, Frantic, and you look 'mahvelous, dahling' in your BWOF pose. (I love CatMukai's comment that we need to work on our pouts). This green is a really flattering color for you; it makes you glow. Very lovely, Lily

I liked that suit when I saw it too and yours turned out fabulous! The longer skirt looks great! Thanks for the review.

Frantic, what a fabulous outfit! This looks just perfect for a Year 12 function - great colour and fantastic style, both of which suit you exceptionally well. You look a knockout!

Lovely, lovely! I have been waiting for someone to review this before I took the plunge, your suit certainly inspires confidence in the pattern!

CatMukai said...
Looks great! I do love the photos, maybe that should be a running trend when we sew BWOFs. We all have to go work on our pouts.
