Oohhh, it's very nice on you! Perfect style for your figure! I also used the "seat of my pants" method for lining this dress. Teehee.....

Beautiful dress even if it's for a funeral. :0( Oddly enough, I was thinking that very thought the other day.

I agree - a very flattering silhouette on you. It is a "killer" dress - very upscale.

Leslie, so sorry for your loss. The dress is absolutely beautiful and elegant and would have been just the right choice for the serious event.

What is the wearing ease on this dress? I like the look of it for work, but would have to wear the uniform shirt underneath it ...Would this work do you think?

Oh good grief. You look so chic. I had this problem last year with a funeral and ended up wearing a mostly pink with some black suit. Ugh. I love this on you and you are in no way a 12 in the Big 4!

You've chosen another winner for yourself, and it sounds like the interior finish is beautiful.

I just love this dress on you! Wish I could wear something like that. It's just beautiful. And the color is lovely. Great job on alterting it to perfect the fit.

this is gorgeous!! high end Nordstrom!! lovely color. Girl you are NO size 12 in the patterns; definitely a 10. I'm a 10 per palmer/pletsch (in the bust anyway) and had always thought I was a 12 but they sized EVERYone down at the seminar and it seems to be the way to go.
