This dress really is perfect for you. It gives you great waist definition and is just ridiculously pretty and flattering.

Hey, if anyone should comment on the mismatched pattern just give them a warm thank-you and say, "How flattering that you've been inspecting my behind!"

It's lovely , I really like the ribbon detailing . I have just made this in a plain dupion and you can't really tell the top section . I might just have to make it again your way !

Great review. The idea of the lining being attached to the facings is new to me. I'll certainly use it.

You used the perfect word 'polished'. This is really nice on you.

Very, very nice; I love the dress. The mis-match in the back is small enough that most will not notice at all. I have seen people wear plaid RTW that were a disgrace to the manufacturer. I too like the ribbon trim. This is an interesting pattern. I should give it a go.

Fabulous. At last I see the famous dress, and well worth the wait it was too. I think you look awesome in this, the ribbon just finishes it off. The fit is impeccable and super flattering. I am looking forward to seeing the turquoise one too.

The colour of the dupioni is lovely on you in this dress. I can see why you love this pattern so much. It looks great. So sorry about your mom.

Wonderful colour on you. I love this new version and you look so happy and confident in your lovely new dress.

When I saw this dress in the magazine it didn't grab me but your versions of it do. They are both great! I might just have to try it now...:)
