It came out beautifully and looks very nice on you! Great job. I am going to make this soon...

I like your choice of print, completely disguises the center front seam.

Your dress is lovely. Thanks for the review and the heads up on the sizing. I'm making it for a client. One of her concerns is: "Will the dress stand out like the drawing?" I'm glad you showed the back of your dress. This will give her an idea. Her dress will be made of silk dupoini. Thanks again, C

Ooooooo! I love this dress on you! You have a great figure for this style, and that fabric is fantastic. Great job! Thanks for the first review for this pattern.

Pretty dress!

vintage signer - if you haven't done it already, the best advice I can give you with the gusset is to not overthink it. Just follow the instructions and you should be fine.

This is so pretty. I have the very same fabric in my stash only mine is cream background with the white embroidered dots. I love how your dress looks in this fabric.

I love love love this pattern and want to make it even more after reading your review that it is not hard. Last time at my favorite store the pattern was sold out in my I feel like I should hunt it down elsewhere. Thanks!

Looks great. I am a new sewer and making this dress in a class but wish I could get extra help with tips on those "gussetted" sleeves/bodice. The teacher wasn't sure about that reinforced seam with binding. Hope she can figure it out! Thanks for the review
