Great dress! I loved Angie's version and now I love yours too! Any pattern that doesn't require alterations, cutting off length doesn't count in my book :), is like finding a pot of gold. Nice job.

I love this dress in a print - it looks so much better than the magazine photo! You look fantastic!

Absolutely fabulous! You are a much better advertisement for this one than the model - she looks blah and you look wonderful! Gorgeous marriage of fabric and style - a true winner!

What a cute and flattering spring and summer dress. Who would have known from the Burda picture?

wow-you really do look better than the model in this dress! When I saw it on the Burda web site, I didn't notice it at all, except I thought it looked like a nightshirt. Now I want to try my first Burda WOF pattern. Wish me luck!!! and, thanks for the inspiration.

This dress is soo cute and is very flattering on you--you look great in this. Burda's pic makes it look like a very basic style, but your dress doesn't look basic at all--it looks very trendy on you. Great job marrying fabric with style!

Very flattering on you. Great job!

Wow, that's really pretty, I'd buy it in the store. Awesome fabric choice, and kudos on the fabric savings, too. 5 yds would yield ALOT of fabric scraps! Looks pretty on you.

The Angie dress is wonderful on you!!! Great fabric and I know this will be a cool summer favorite. Maybe this should be the Plus sew along uniform.

Super cute dress on you! Great job.

Your dress is so cute. But I'm heartbroken. I never buy more than 2 yards of knit. I'm having trouble finding something in my stash to use for this one. But since you said it would be good for someone with hips, I'm going to be all over it.

Sorry about that, I jumped the gun and posted twice!

WOW, you're FAST! I JUST saw Angie's review yesterday or the day before. :o) BOTH of your versions are WONDERFUL! They look SO nice on you, and I REALLY like the print fabrics. VERY flattering!

What a cute dress! I really love the fabric, which works beautifully with this style. You did a great job!

Wow! What a classy dress! This looks AMAZING on you!

Michelle, you're one groovy gal! This is such a cool and versatile dress!

Gorgeous dress to match your million-dollar smile! Your look beautiful!

Perfect fabric & pattern combo- this looks so great on you!

Nice work, michellep! The style looks great on you. I especially like the print you chose. Wearing prints can be tough for us larger gals, because they can draw the eye to specific parts of our bodies (ones we don't necessarily want to emphasize!). The one you chose has lots of movement in it - the eye is drawn all over, rather than toward one specific focal point. Much better to wear an all-over print like this, than a floral where you end up with a large flower on each breast, and another on your bum!

This is such a cute dress made up, both yours and Angie's. Nice job.

AHHHHH....I'm so loving it. I tried to fit it in my 2 way. I'm going to buy fabric and try it out myself this week. Super duper cute
