Once again, great choice and use of fabric, you look great!

Being petite means you need to realise that you are petite. As to what we wear and make, that's our decision. You've done a great job with the dress and the fabric. Thank you for thinking the details through. You've inspired me.

I have been eyeing this one in the mag, your version is awesome! You did a great job! I am glad to hear that the zipper can be eliminated!

This is so cute. I'm hooked on the "maxi" too. Love your fabric selection even though you had to cut off the cute detail at the bottom. Thanks for the heads up on the length.

Thanks for the length warning - we're the same height and I'll be very careful when cutting my fabric. This looks like you could sew in bra cups and skip the whole strapless bra issue altogether. Looks great on you and I love your fabric.

Beautiful dress, super cute fabric! I can't wait to make this too. I'll make sure to check the length as I'm also 5' 3ish.

This is on my list, but I am just shy of 5'8". Thanks SO much for the review! It looks fabulous on you!

WOW! Your dress is beautiful. Thanks for the warning about the length, too bad that you lost your hemline details though.

love it! i've got mine cut out and can't wait to get it sewn. thanks for the length and strap points. i thought the straps seemed narrow when i was cutting! maybe i should cut them wider? but yours look great, so maybe not.
