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!

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!
