Wow! What a lovely dress. Great color combination. Very flattering on you. :) Glad to know you were able to do a successful sba to this pattern. Will have to look up Fit For Real People before I make my Parfait dress. Adding this pattern to my wish list. Thanks for the review.

Cute, cute, cute! This is the pattern I wanted to see made up. I'm glad you attempted an SBA and it was successful. That's why I've been holding back.

This is so cute! I made the Parfait dress and loved it so much that I ordered two other Colette patterns--I might need to get this one at some point, too!

I love your dress. You look great in it!!!. I bought this pattern but now i have to get the "Fit for Real People" book to learn to do a SBA. My first attempt on this dress was unsuccessful. Thanks for the recommendation.
