I love the dress. It looks fabulous on you. I really like it with the flower pin, even more than with the tab

Gorgeous. Much, much nicer than the magazine version. I adore the plum coloured dress and the decorative pin really finishes the dress beautifully.

I passed on that issue because I didn't see anything I thought I'd make, but this is amazing.

Gorgeous dresses, both version! Thanks for your review, I purchased two lengths of knit last weekend just to make this dress so hopefully I will benefit from your tips!

"I wonder if it will spontaneously combust because I failed to age it for at least a week....or ten years!" Made me smile! I am loving this top..your color choice is just beautiful, very rich looking. This pattern is a must make.

Oh! The instant I enlarged the postage stamp picture, I was blown away by this knock-out dress. It is SO distinctive in a very elegant way. I absolutely love the lines of this and you look fabulous in it.

do NOT cut up the looks FANTASTIC on you. kind of old hollywood-ish. With the shoes! I like the plum one too and you might wear it more but the other is REALLY quite flattering...IMHO

Love the plum dress. The pin is perfect. It's the perfect outfit for the art show. Congratulations on a job well done - and also on having pieces in the art show!

Great dresses, I will definitely be trying this pattern.

This is definitely on my to-do list. The plum version is beautiful. Hope it doesn't spontaneously combust - I made something out of "new" fabric recently and wondered if it would work because it hadn't hung around long enough to know what was expected of it. Great job.

Gorgeous color that plum is!
