Listen sister, fabulous curves need showing off. Your dress looks stunning, the fit is perfect. Great job!

Forgot to add, thanks for the hint to peg the hem a bit. That is a flattering trick for women with hips and I always forget it.

Ah, wear the dress my friend. You have a fabulous figure and your new dress complements it so nicely. I like it so much I think you should make it in a summery print for casual wear too.

You look fabulous! This is the perfect LBD(little black dress). I have this pattern and I'm going to make it in black now that I have seen yours!

Well, as usual, I'm a little late to the party, but I LOVE this dress on you, Andrea. It's not TOO anything, it's just PERFECT. Very classy! It really shows off your figure nicely, too.

I agree with everybody else: you're rockin the classy-sexy, not the trashy-trampy. Congrats on getting such an excellent fit.

Ooh I like it. I think you should rock this dress often!

The dress is wonderful and soooo flattering - what is this "too s*xy" crap? Erase that thought and make more. You and that dress are made for each other.

This looks wonderful. Fitted and a good sexy. I'd wear it to work with a jacket. As a luxury-sized gal that is the style I try to project -- fitted and fine. Looks great and if it were me I'd make a few more in other colors and have a wardrobe of them.

Gorgeous! I can see this looking very veeeeeery nice for an evening out, especially if you accessorised with a chiffon or similar wrap.

Yes yes yes, I agree with the ladies above! You look great! You did an awesome job fitting the bust.

I agree with Debbie Cook! Are you crazy?? Too sexy for a gal your size? Sure you look sexy but not hoochie. I think that's a great combination for anybody no matter what size. This pattern is moving to the top of my list right behind my wedding dress!

You are going to have every woman out there wishing they had your fantastic figure. I think you must wear it, and wear it with attitude.

It's great to look sexy at any size. Andrea I love how this dress turned out. You look wonderful.
Debbie Cook said... (8/14/09 11:49 AM) Reply
What?? Too sexy for a gal your size?? What the heck does THAT mean? LOL! It's not like it's a hoochie mama everything hanging out and all exposed kind of dress. I think this looks great. Classy sexy, not hoochie.

Andrea, you got a wonderful fit and I think you look great in it! Definitely NOT too sexy for your size!
