You look fantastic in that colour - it really suits you. The simple dress and stunning fabric make for a winning combination...and all looks terrific with the obi belt and blue shoes.

Looks beautiful! You made a great choice in fabric. I was just looking back at some old Burda Mags and was eyeing this dress. thanks for the review.

This looks more like a $280 dress! Both versions are fabulous.

Everything about this dress is appealing! Great marriage of pattern & fabric, and that obi belt is superb!

Wow. I love that dress. I made this in black but may have to make it again in, like you said, a wildly different fabric.

Fabulous! I love the colour. I think it looks good without a belt, actually, but adding one does give it extra visual interest.

Just lovely! Hard to imagine this same dress in a camel-colored wool, but I bet you can pull it off!
