Love your version of this dress! It definitely takes some muslining to get a great fit-- I think b/c of the cut-on sleeves. But with your iridescent pink and black overlay, it's gorgeous and well worth the work.

OMG, I just LOVE this dress! The combination of fabric and lace really makes it pop. It is great for day, but could easily transition into evening. Great job!

You look so ladylike in your lace dress. Beautiful choice of underlining that really shows off the lace. Thanks for all the picture showing construction.

You have done a fantastic job on this dress. It suits you beautifully, both colour and style and is Very Elegant. So pleased to see such a successful grading down. I'll put this on a must sew list for our summer now. Congratulations and thank you for such an informative review (especially for my adjustments!).

Trina, I just love this dress. The color is so YOU! And the fit is fabulous. I must also mention how much I love reading your reviews. I like how you do your photos too. Thanks for sharing.

Very cute dress! I'm laughing about the "giant swayback adjustment tuck"! A lot of patterns seem to neglect the fit of the back and I often have to do the same thing. And you've made yours fit so nicely. Brava!
