I was just looking at this pattern last evening, thinking it looked incredibly difficult. You did a masterful job with it -- the dress is drop-dead gorgeous on you. I think I'll pass on making it, but I admire your courage for tackling this one!

Congratulations on your beautiful red dress. It looks stunning on you. I am sure you will be the belle of the Valentine's Party.

Beautiful dress. The picture does not show the details like your photostream. At first I thought it was just a fitted dress with wrinkles across the front until I saw the other pictures that showed the details. You did a great job with the fitting and the color looks nice on you. I think the final product was well worth the complexity of construction.

Gorgeous dress, it looks wonderful in red. I just received this pattern today so your detailed review is very welcome.

I'm so glad you tackled this new pattern. I have been fascinated with it and will buy it soon. Your version using wool jersey in red was a great choice. It's beautiful, fits well and is very flattering on you. Thanks for all the detailed tips.

Ravishing in Red! Thanks for a great review with lots of helpful tips. Very puzzling about the different dart heights??

Gorgeous dress! Perfect for Valentine's day. Thanks for your very detailed review. This is my favorite pattern of the new Vogues. I think you were right in making the front bodice piece symmetrical.
2/4/09 10:34 PM
That is fantastic! Do you think it would be hard to turn the skirt into having a slight a-line?

Yummy dress! Red is certainly your color! This dress looks fabulous on you. While it is a little advanced for me, I'm very thankful you posted! Great review too!

need to think very carefully about fabric choice

This dress really caught my eye - and it's even better in red! As I sat here reading through the pattern instructions and trying to picture the construction, I said out loud, "What have I gotten myself into?!" I came right to Pattern Review and how wonderful to find your terrific review! I also thought this would be flattering on a mature figure. Your helpful review and many pictures are inspiring. I'll definitely do a pattern-fitting and muslin. Gorgeous, beautiful, stunning! Thank you.

Thamkyou I thought about tackling this one and after reading your review I am going to give it a miss. Even though you did a great job and it looks great it's just to complicated for me.

I just ordered this on sale for $5.99. I came right over to patternreview.com to see how it goes together. Thanks for such a detailed review. Have you heard back from Vogue? I want to look great in this dress - just like you!

Challenging but, so chic on you ! I missed the initial publication of your review. Thank you for the excellent review. I think that after crying over another DKNY pattern, I will pass on this one.
4/1/09 7:27 PM
Thanks for all the detail in the review. The dress is fabulous on you. I'm debating over cutting this out tonight, and your review is very helpful.

Your review and photostream are going to be really helpful when I get to work on this for my h.s. reunion in August. Where would you make fitting adjustments to get more ease in the back, esp. around the waist and lower back?
