Wow! What a great review, and homage to Missoni. Your tunic is beautiful, I love the selvage edge. Wear it with joy...
2/17/09 10:48 PM
Gorgeous and versatile! It was a brilliant idea to use the selvage as a decorative band. I love your artistic photos. Your husband is a great photographer! Excellent review.

Of course, you might ALSO die for fabric while crossing the street to RIP IT OFF SOMEBODY'S UNSUSPECTING BACK! :o) This fabric is truly a feast for the eyes, absolutely BEAUTIFUL, as are YOU in this WONDERFUL creation. I LOVE the boat neck. The fit you've achieved is PERFECT: not too loose, not too tight. And I can't believe I didn't even THINK of wearing it as a dress until I saw the picture! ALL of your shots are awesome, of course, but then I would expect NO LESS from THE LOVELY MAHLER. :o) And with that burnt orange scarf: Ooo-laa-laa! (By the way, I think I'll quit not making muslins and start not making toiles.) :o)

Annette, you will never stop making me laugh ! AnneMarie, I will give the compliment to DH... who is an underwater photographer. Since I am not a shrimp or a mermaid, I always have to twist his arm to take my picture in dry condition ;-)

I'm so happy to finally see the final result: you look lovely in your tunic/dress! And this fabric is to die for + it is f-a-n-t-a-s-t-i-c with your skin tone! Great job ma chère! :-)

This is a beautiful tunic, the fabric is gorgeous.
2/17/09 11:15 PM
Ooohh, Mahler, how gorgeous you look! These are photos straight out of Vogue magazine, I'm sure. Both the photographer and the model have a very stylish and artistic flair about them. I love everything about this. The fabric is stunning and your use of the selvedge to make the band is very clever. A very stunning creation!

Beautiful tunic, great review!
2/17/09 11:48 PM
Well, whether or not you're a SHRIMP (as in little bitty) may be up for debate -- heh-heh-heh. :o)) I was just admiring all your Flickr pictures again!

Your tunic turned out wonderful! Love the use of the selvage at the hem. Enjoy!

That is just terrific, as usual! What wonderful pictures.

This is such a versatile pattern and you did a great take on this, I love the salvage band, and the combination of the simplicity of this pattern and your choice of fabric.........it is not only the fabric but it's whole of your tunic that we all die for!
2/18/09 11:45 AM
Just awesome and great photos!

Excellentoo. Love it

Very inspiring. And incredible on you.

Merci for such a wonderful review! Wow, stunning! Gorgeous photos of a gorgeous lady wearing a gorgeous Missoni tunic! Boy, that fabric - totally awesome. Yep, to die for.
2/18/09 12:40 PM
Wow! Wow! You look wonderful in this! The pattern companies ought to have you for a model!
2/18/09 1:05 PM
What a treat to view! These are wonderful pictures and your garment is TDF.
2/18/09 2:09 PM
love what you made and your husband's photo skills. did you make the pants too?
2/18/09 7:03 PM
Thank you all for the wonderful comments. DH does not touch the earth any more with all those compliments for the pictures. For DianeAnnie, I did not make the leather pants. But I can tell you that the day those pants do not look go anymore, they will become a purse or be used for trimming.
2/18/09 7:59 PM
Tres superbe, Anne! J'adore le tissu, le style et tous le reste!
2/18/09 8:38 PM
Sometimes classic simplicity is best; you look quite chic in your tunic!

It took a couple of days before I was able to sit down and savor this review, so I'm a little late to the party, but WOW this is a big dose of style. The edge at the hem and your husband's photography are both brilliant and I love the boat neck and of course the fabric. You look vibrant and stunning!

Catbird, I think that it is never too late to party ! ;-) Thank you for your nice comments.
