Very nice take on the dress! I love the idea of the trim. And the pattern (tunic and dress) suits you well.

I was intrigued by those Anna Sui trims, too. I'm with Markie; I canNOT see where the trim is joined! I didn't get it at first. lol.

Absolutely LOVE that hem trim. I bought a wide lace from Kashi last year and now you are inspiring me to actually use it. I've been thinking about this pattern for a while, and you're definitely pushing me closer to it!

Yhe trim really makes this dress a "standout". What a clever idea. The hem really came out very neat. Like the tunic, too.

CS, I remember that BWOF. You totally did that pattern justice! I love the version with crochet at the bottom. Really new and modern. I hope you'll bring this one to PR Portland!!

Oh, I have just bought trimmings like this ( just don't know how I should use them!), I love the way you used, it's simple and striking, thanks for the review. Inspiring.
