Wow, you really HAVE found a TNT! This is so light and fun and, yes, Pucci! You're going to have a very stylish and breezy summer -- you'll be the envy of that whole stylish and breezy little town of yours :))

I am coveting your dress. It fits you so nicely and I love that print! I will definitely be making one in two different fabrics.

Fantastic dress on you, and I love your tips. I have this pattern on my to-do list because it looks great on everyone who makes it. Excellent fabric combo.

Very complete review. Georgeous dress. I really want to make this one for Easter next year so will refer back.

This is a gorgeous dress.. I love the two tone....

I like your checklist for this dress - I follow a similar one myself, and now I'm going to have to give this pattern a shot. Great job, and I would definitely consider this a TNT for you - looks good and you can do a lot of variations on it.

Stunning dress! A really fun and informative review too. Thanks!

(Repeating what I just wrote on your previous posting of this review... ;) )... WOW -- this dress is fabulous!!

Thanks for the great review. I love your fabric choices. I just bought fabric to make this myself! Unfortuntately, I did not read the other reviews first, so I did not get something with stretch - guess I'll have to leave even MORE hip room :-)

I said this on your blog, but I don't mind repeating myself: I absolutely love this dress! And now I love the review, too. You have a way of taking my sewing imagination to places it is unfamiliar with, like shirtdresses! I'm smitten with the easygoing, crisp, classy but-not-trying-too-hard look of this, and of course with that gorgeous fabric. The complete look with the belt and shoes is Vogue-worthy. I love it. And by the way, I don't buy the flubby arms and sorry-excuse-for-a-waist:)) No way!! Thank you for another great and fun review.

Wow - this is a really great dress! So versatile and nicely made!

Great review, but flubby arms? I don't think so. Beautiful dress. I want to make one!
Nancy K said... (5/8/09 7:49 AM) Reply
Beautiful! I am always looking for black and white abstract prints and this one is gorgeous. Fits beautifully.

Great dress! I thoroughly enjoyed your review. And I love that series of MasterCard adverts too :-).

I don't think I ever "knew" what a shirt dress was before this review. It looks fabulous on you. Great detailed review and I see why you like it so much.
