That is one gorgeous dress -- the color caught my eye, and your review is so helpful! Thanks so much. I also find that sewing cuffs, etc is SO much easier flat - why do instructions always direct us to sew in the round? I mean, I know there are shaping advantages to sewing in the round, but the screw-up possibilities just shoot up exponentially for me, which more than balances it out.

Thanks for the review! I'm actually sewing this dress now for my daughter. She plans to wear it to work with a cami under it. Your dress is gorgeous!

Lovely dress. I think the brooch really adds a nice touch. How lucky to find something that worked so well in your costume jewelry "stash." I'd love to see a photo of you wearing the dress.

I just picked up this pattern yesterday. I am very thankful for the heads up on the sizing, pleats, marking & cuff to sleeve construction. Your dress looks great!
