Fabulous, Kay! The fit is perfect and very flattering. Great use of PMB & PE to tweak. You should definitely sew another.

Stunning dress, the fit is perfection! I nearly succumbed to the HP pattern this week, it's so stylish. Thanks for sharing your adventures in PMB. I'm tempted to ask Santa to bring it for Christmas :) Great review.

Cette robe est genial Kay ! I am always so much impressed by your sewing skills. The fabric is fabulous. I am a total fan of paisley fabric. This dress is very business, but yet with a distinctive touch ! Ahhh pure beauty.

Flawless fit and great style. I greatly enjoyed the pictures of your PMB changes and muslin process -- awesome review.

How PRETTY, Kay! When I first saw this fabric (before the closeup), it almost looked like a brocade. It's just LOVELY. Your dress is PERFECTLY fitted, as usual, and really shows off your figure!

Kay, you are beautiful in this dress! I'm kind of computer stupid, but aware enough to know that you have used digital magic to transform a desirable HP pattern into a work of Art. Each aspect of this dress is perfect, and perfect for your trim shape (very envious of how you wear that leather belt with such panache). Please come teach to my house to teach me how to do what you do. Lovely, Lily

Oh no! This is so similar to something I want to copy with PMB, and now you really scared me that it will need a ton of adjustment!

Your dress is lovely, a perfect combination of fabric, fit, style and workmanship. Your success with PMB makes me want to try it too. A friend has offered to give me a demo and I may take her up on the offer.

The finished dress is beautiful and looks as if it will be very wearable this coming winter. Thank you for all the thought and detail you put into your review. Fascinating reading.

Your dress is lovely! Will you please share your collar and lapel settings with me. I've drafted a very similar pattern and am having difficulty with the collar. Did you use the Built up, Stand, Roll or Flat collar setting with the notched lapel? Also, if the lapel width is 2" then do you think that the collar width should also be set at 2"? I'm a newbie with PMB. Thanks! Jill
