This dress looks great on you. I really have to get to work on mine! Thanks for such a thorough review (especially the information about the bust -- now I know I don't have to do a FBA.)

Great dress on you. Both are cute but the print is my fav! Cute pocket button.

Your second one is so darling. I love the alterations you did. This dress shows off your cute figure to perfection.

The first dress was great, but you made a huge improvement on this version (plus I have a real soft spot for the fabric). You look happy to wear it, and that's the best thing.

Wow, this version is great too.

I LUV this dress!!!

I like this more somber version, and I'd love to see it in a brighter color-- I can even visualize it in a louder print for summer. Lots of vavoom!

My what a nicely cut pattern! You look very good in this!
angie.a said... (5/20/09 9:35 PM) Reply
Michelle it's adorable!! I can't WAIT to start on one of mine!

That dress is a winner. Great job. I think I will need to order these.

Thanks for all of the kind words, everyone! This dress is my favorite thing that I've sewn in a while--I'll definitely be whipping up a few more versions and will be trying a few more Colette patterns soon.

Your excitement about sewing up this fantastic sundress/pinafore is understandable and your lovely rendition has great workmanship and fit. It looks super on you.

What a lovely and versatile pattern and great rendition. I am considering this pattern after seeing your version!

Wonderful review and great job! I've been following the thread and plan to order a couple from her, too. Well done!

Oh, I'm so glad to see this on you Michelle! It looks soooo good! I still haven't even started cutting my fabric out for the Beignet skirt. What is wrong with me?! LOL!
Kellie R. said... (5/19/09 9:28 AM) Reply
This is so cute! I think it's wonderful that the owner responded to a customer's question so quickly! Your results are fabulous and you look great!

Great results. Thanks for sharing this review. I'd love to see pix of some of the details, like the pockets.

I am so glad some of you are reviewing these patterns. I had sworn off buying any more patterns, I am going to have to swear off after making a purchase or two of these!
Annette1 said... (5/19/09 3:34 AM) Reply
Well, you're just as cute as can be in this dress! It's VERY flattering, with so many wonderful details! I LOVE that bodice, fitted perfectly, of course! Looks like a TNT to me. :o)

Wow, a winner straight off the tracks from a new company! I'd heard rumblings of this company before, but was too late to be a tester. This dress is super cute and has lots of amazing details. You look fabulous, and thanks for lightening the photo so we can see the details. Terrific job! And a sidenote - I'm too young for these patterns, but the kid is right in her demographics. We'll be ordering as soon as she sees the line and decides what she wants.

Wow, sounds like an awesome pattern company. I love your dress, what a flattering style!

You are absolutley right, this dress has really flattering lines! The midriff is a great detail and makes this dress look great on you!

That came out great. What a stylish dress. Great details. Don't people who buy RTW wish they could get something half that nice!
Sherril Miller said... (5/18/09 5:25 PM) Reply
I love the color and your shoes are so cute with it. The fit and style suit you perfectly.
