I just bought this pattern because it looks similar to a RTW dress that I love to wear. Thanks for all the warnings about this pattern. You did a great job on the dress.

Who would have thought a plain, grey dress could be so sexy? Thanks a million for the sizing info: it ought to save yards of fabric from ending up in a trash can.

What a terrific dress. And so sleek in the gray. I'm sorry it was too big, but it looks like it came together!

Very lovely, nicer than the pattern photo. Flattering color on both of you and great fit, too.

Wow you gals look great in that dress! Looks like you both should be in Sex and the city! :-) Thanks for the detail review. I may try this with a moderate stretch knit with your suggestions.

This looks great! Good job! I like the binding you used, it worked awesome. Thats a good tip to remove the darts when using a knit. I might have to get this pattern!

That's a really pretty dress! Judging from the changes you made to the pattern and how nice the finished garment is, I think you can upgrade yourself from "advanced beginner." Yes, indeed.

I'm really glad you did this review because I just finished trying to make this dress and it was a disaster. Armholes too big, bodice was huge despite the fact that I used the "correct" size. I used some really cheap fabric and ended up just junking it. I was fairly discouraged, but given the fact that you also encountered some problems makes me feel a little better. Looks fantastic!!!
