The adjustments you made made the dress so much better! Do you make patterns?

Well, you look just gorgeous. I only wish that a pattern based on squares looked half as good on me.

Your alterations have really MADE this dress. It looks WONDERFUL on you. I too love that deep hem (as well as the yoke). I especially like the dress paired with your tights and those GREAT shoes. :o)

That dress looks so great on you. The info on the sleeves was very helpful. Not sure I would have known how to fix them. Now I do! Thank you

I have to concur re HP - the pattern pieces seem clunky and don't produce the illustrated garment. However, your modifications are perfect. Beautiful dress.

Love the dress (and the shoes!) I found that the one HP that i made was similar in the "block" pieces...You did a fantastic job making yours fit well. love it!

That's a great dress! Thanks for all the tips about the arm/shoulder area. Your shoes are totally hot too.
