Very cute! I didn't love this pattern as much as most other people who made it, either. Maybe it's a height thing.

This is a very cute dress! The fabric is gorgeous - I'd love to get to Vogue Fabrics in Chicago one day... You look great in this dress!

One other design change I forgot to mention - I cut the back piece on the fold to eliminate a seam down the back, while also giving a little more room in the caboose. This probably wasn't necessary from a sizing standpoint, but I like that the pattern is uninterrupted in the back by eliminating the seam.

That looks really cute on you. I love the print, and it looks like you do have good coverage.

Thanks for sharing your experience sewing this dress which looks attractive on you. The fabric design is great too! I appreciate what you said comparing it to what is I guess Simplicity 4074. I've never sewn a knit fabric and carefully consider everyone's opinion and experience to help me for the eventuality when I'm able to sew. (Meanwhile, I really enjoy the reviews.)

Wow! your dress turned out really great! I've never sewn a Vogue pattern and I'm not too sure if I want to but yours turned out great!
