"including amortization of magazine subscription" lol. I thought only family economics majors talked like that....rofl. I still like this dress and think your fitting and underlining decisions were just right.

You are right--super cute! And that's a great assessment on fit. You wear this style VERY well, girlfriend!

Wow, what a great review! The dress is really flattering and I would never guess there even *are* any lumps or bumps under there!

Excellent choice for flattering your figure type! The yoke and pouf sleeves create the perfect balance!!

Very flattering on you, but your sewn garments always are! Great job and excellent review!

This looks lovely. How about that pattern eh? What a debacle but worth the persistence! Well done,you tackled the Latin T/dress!

It looks great on you and I love how you styled it. Sometimes the translation leaves a great deal to be desired at BWOF. The print is perfect for this dress.

This dress is so cute! It looks great on you. :) (Pleading ignorance: what exactly is a "stay"?)

Adorable! I love your fabric choice, and the lacey leggings are perfect!

Thanks for such a great review. I have to psyche myself up to make/wear a knit T-shirt dress, but yours is adorable. It is very flattering without looking cheap.

Really cute! Thanks for the tip about the underlining--I've wondered if this would work for some of my clingier jerseys.

That's adorable. I had seen this photo in your online photos and looked forward to the review. Now, does the lining make it hot? In Texas, it seems it would be too hot, but I totally get the part about smoothing out the bumps too!

Very cute dress! The leggings look perfect with it.

I can see why you totally love this dress! It is gorgeous on you. Slow to the party as usual, I'm now working on my version of this (the top, not the dress).
