Very cute Dawn! I seriously wish you'd share half of your energy with me - you always get so much sewing done so quickly.

Really yummy dress, Dawn, and you look so stylish in it. I don't think the fabric is bland, at all, but rather classically chic. Love your sandals, too. And yes, make another in denim with two rows of topstitching - totally different look. Lovely, Lily

Another beautiful example of your well thought-out sewing. You always look immaculate in your clothes, and this is no exception. I love your blog--"sewing is taking over my life"--I hear you, sister!

Wow, that is VERY classy -- so pretty. Probably my favorite thing of all the fabulous stuff you've ever made. :)

I didn't even catch this one in the February issue, but I'm going to have to trace it off. This is a great little dress - I like the neutral-but-not-boring fabric (and your shoes, as always).

Cute dress! I looks so nice on you!! It reminds me so much of one I made when I was about 20 (which would be 1974). I may have to make a 2009 version. Mine was grey so when I saw your picture that was the first thing I thought of.

Your dress looks great! Thank you for the review and the hint about the hips --- I think I have to make this one too, in addition to all of the other great patterns in this issue of Burda!

Very cute, love your version. Must remember this for in 2 months time.

As usual, WOW! I'm so inspired by your sewing. I've been perusing my stash catalog, and think I found something suitable to try this. This looks so great on you!
