This came out beautifully. It looks like you are tall, with long legs, and a smaller chest. I am none of those things either, so I just might have to make one, too! Fab job.

What a neat dress. Will work perfectly with 1/2" purple heels. ;) (3"! Ouch!) Neat style.

Very cool. I don't wear that length much, would it be easy to lengthen or is the bubble too complicated?

Now normally I detest bubble skirts but I like this a LOT. And I think purple in any shade is really your color- it's glorious on you.

Very actual and original. This dress seams to have been designed for you. Your choice of fabric is wonderful.

Holy cow, Cidell, another winner. I am so glad you made this dress, because I just passed over it in Burda. Now, I have to make it-you look amazing.

You look so cute in this dress!! I love it!

I'm thinking that all bubble dresses should be made from knit - you've killed the pouffiness without losing the cuteness of the bubble. Love the colors on you.

You look fantastic in your bubble twist dress. Ultra cute.

Ooo! Love how mod you are in this! The skirt portion is *awesome*! Just the right amount of "bubble".

A leather biker jacket and boots would be fun with this print too. Nice dress:)

I'm so glad you like this pattern and you "say" you don't fit the requirements for tall and small busted. I really wanted to make it but I fit the opposite requirements- short and busty. If it looks half as good on me as it does you, I'll be happy! Thanks for the review.

I too feel a bit divided about bubble skirts, but this one is great - movement not exagerated poofiness, that must be the secret. And that print is to die for :-).

It looks fabulous! So how do you iron a bubble skirt?
kerrynw said... (10/12/08 2:53 AM) Reply
Stunning look! I like your version of this dress better than BWOF.

Well, I just saw a review for a bubble dress for a toddler, and now here you are in your own version of a bubble dress. :o) They're BOTH equally cute, too. That "bubble" is SO cute, and you wear it so well, too, 3" purple heels and all!

Cidell, you look an absolute knockout in this dress! It's such an interesting design and the fabric makes a great statement to go with it. It's fantastic!

This is great. I love how the skirt has a twist to it.

You look amazing in this dress. I absolutely love it although being much further away from being tall and small busted than you are I know it won't work on me, but it's still great to see this made up in real life.

That dress is awesome and you look awesome in it!!! I am going to make that.

Completely charming dress, Cidell. Like Louella (Heatherrique) I never even noticed this dress in the magazine, but you've certainly made it a stand out! I very much like the skirt and think it's more a twisty skirt than a bubble skirt. You look positively gorgeous in it, and I'm liking these color tones for your complextion ... a lot. Very lovely, Lily

Wow! Somehow I skipped the page for this dress! You brought life to this dress! Stunning on you!

Okay-- I love this dress on you! Very, very cute and almost Leeanne-from-project-runway with the twist in the bubble skirt. You look GREAT!

That dress is fabulous on you! I like it better than the BWOF version.

Very cute lines. Great fit! The bubble hem looks much better with prints, almost hidden!!!

This is incredibly cute!!! I've never been a big fan of bubble skirts but in a knit it totally works! I'm going to take another look at this pattern now. Thanks for the inspiration!
