I tried this pattern, and failed to make it work for me, whereas I normally have reasonable success with Vogue patterns. Your comment on the bodice darts made me laugh out loud. For me, this was the unfixable problem.... But I still find myself drawn to the pattern 😁. And yours looks SO wonderful! I think I have to try again..

Ooh. The picture made me say "Ooohh" Lovely! I'm late to the review, but am thinking of making this dress for a wedding. Yours is splendid!

This is fabulous dress and your effort at fitting was worth it. I just bought the pattern and am going to give it a try.

Are you maligning meeses here? :o) Meeses need party dresses too, you know! This looks GREAT on you! It's JUST the right amount of sparkle: classy, but fun! I like the bow, too!

Wow, stunning. One vote for the bow, but removable. Then you can decide based on the event. I just got this pattern, thanks for the warnings.

Gorgeous dress, it looks great on you. I especially like it with the bow.

Your dress is beautiful and looks rich. I like it better with no bow. I think it looks more expensive, but then I'm not a bow person!

Beautiful dress! I'm sewing the version with sleeves right now and am fighting with the fit. Thanks for your review that greatly motivated me to persevere!

You look wonderful in the dress -and well done on getting the fit right. I liked your tip on pressing over a bra. And I liked the look with the bow too!

I've always wanted to see what this pattern looks like made up, so thank you! It looks great on you. Next time I need a dress I'll give this one some consideration.
