This looks great on you. The colour of the fabric suits you.

Great looking dress, Cidell! You probably could still add a lining of sorts if that would give you more use of the dress, or cut it off and use it as a top and then make the dress version again with a lining. This dress would look great with a large pendant necklace. It really gives a great background for a piece of statement jewelry. I don't think it's a bad thing that the seams don't pop out with this print as the print and general shape tell the story.

Forget about the UUUU mon cheval look ! You look great. If you give it to your mother, will we have the chance to see a picture of her wearing it ?

I like the fabric for this dress! Very cute!

Another wonderful creation! Great idea about underlining the yoke. I wouldn't think you should have to line the rest of it but I know these knits have gotten very thin. Maybe wear a slip, with non-static spray?

This dress is fantastic. I think the fit is perfect. I, too, love the fabric.

This is a great style for you and I agree with everyone about the fabric and the fit. You look so pretty in this dress! Funny about BWOF and the understitch word. They drive me crazy. PR members must unite and demand our right to clear sewing terms!

Cidell, that looks very nice. You are right that the yoke is lost but I really like the print. You did a nice job of fitting the sleeves. I have noticed that some of the McCalls patterns also have a hard time just writing "understitch". We are all getting smarter every time we sew! Cindy

Congratulations! This dress looks terrific on you. And the price can't be beat. Great job!

The yoke detail might be hard to see, but I really love this fabric, and I think it's a great match for the shape of the dress. And I think the shape looks great on you--it really shows off your tiny waist!

Great dress and great print! This design works really well for you!

I'm sure the yoke detail is nice, but I like the fabric better. It really suits the shape of the dress - which, by the way, I think looks fine on you. I don't think you need to grade it up any further.

That's a very stylish dress! I think it looks great as is from the picture.

I love that knit. The dress is really cute on you even if you don't think so. Have you tried it with a belt? It might make your waist really pop and take emphasis from the bottom half. I think the bottom half looks fine, btw.

This is really cute! I love the fabric and I think it looks really flattering in your picture! Your projects always are fabulous!

Ooh, it's a knit - I had asked on your blog if it was from Ghana - It looks like a woven batik. Every bit as good-looking though!

This is very pretty on you! Love the fabric you used.

You always make such lovely and stylish clothes. This looks great on you. I love the tip about lining the bodice. Thanks for the note about the sleeve construction. Great job on a great looking dress.
