That rocks! I love the print and how it looks on you. I think the key to maxi dresses is a very breathable rayon or cotton fabric. I have one and any amount of poly = sweltering. I'm making another in a very lightweight cotton and one more in a rayon knit.

I love this, and I think your midriff and neck contrasts bring the dress to a whole new level.

Love your maxi dress, particularly the way you cut the midriff panel. Great job!

Lining it was a great idea, and i love the wider midriff. i failed to make a winner out of this pattern, but am inspired to try again.

Wow - this is stunning on you! You have used the fabric so cleverly, and the wide midriff is fantastic. So glamorous with that perfect backdrop.

I love this dress and the dress on you. It's definitely unlike most of the things I've seen on you but that's part of what makes it fabulous.

I love, love, love that dress. It looks great on you. (No, it doesn't look like a rib cage.) I think this review will improve the sales of that pattern.

It's perfect for you. Perfect fit, perfect fun fabric. And you used the fabric to it's best advantage. Just looking at your dress put me in a good mood. It must be so fun to wear!

What a great dress! I love your use of contrast for the waist and straps. Looks great on you as well.

Absolutely gorgeous. I ordered this pattern on Monday to try the dress you are wearing. Was kinda skeptical buying it though, but after seeing yours.... it is beautiful!! Can't wait for mine to arrive.
