Cute AND elegant at the same time! You should find another excuse to wear it - and wear it with pride, you DO have the figure for it!

I think the dress looks lovely on you. You did a great job, and the dress hangs beautifully. I just received a DVD of my nephew's wedding that took place in sunny Ventura. I shudder when I see myself in my boring, matronly dress. Next time I attend a wedding, I'm wearing a smart, chic dress—similar to that one!

If I looked like you do in that dress, I'd wear it every day!! Even to the grocery store! You should wear it again and enjoy it!

Dang it, Dang it Dang it! I so want somone to give this dress a good report so I can make it!! I wonder why you don't like it. Can you send it to me:):) I really want to try it on and decide whether to make it. It is just the cutest flapper dress. It totally doesn't look too young on you at all. Your fit looks perfect. you look fabulous, probably was the best dress at the wedding. your fabrics are perfect. Do tell more.

I don't think it is cute at all, it is beyond gorgeous!! I wish I had the fabric/pattern gene like you do, and your figure too!!

Wow-thank you all for your comments, I am rethinking this dress. Also, I really want everyone to know that it is a great pattern--completely do-able for all levels.

You look super cute in this dress and should definitely wear it again!

I don't know what you are complaining about. I liked the dress on the dress form, but it looks much better on you! You should most definitely wear it again. Thank you for an inspiring review.

LynnRowe said...
It looks fab on you! But if you're not comfy with it & won't wear it again, can you take the skirt part off and wear the top as a top?

Markie, thanks for the review - I think you look lovely in your dress! You have the figure to pull it off - nice work!

You really are rockin the dress. Great review!

I agree - it looks better on you than on the dress form, and that's always the mark of a good pattern! I've had many things that look great on the form and so-so on me. The fabric is great and the color is wonderful on you. I think maybe you need to let it sit for a while and come back to it, you'll feel differently about it soon because it looks cute and also looks very comfortable.

I love that "dressing up when dressing down look" - jersey used in an upscale way. So cute Markie

I think this dress looks amazing on you! Not "too young" at all!!

Anniinbc said...
OK - you've had enough people tell this dress is cute! cute! cute! You must wear it. And I like your idea of adding the belt and love the metallic jersey.

I think it looks really nice on you, Markie. ( had to look up the reference to Pouter Pigeon)

This is very fun and attractive. Great party dress. Not at all too young for you. The elastic to blouse it and then the tie belt was brilliant.

You innovated really well to achieve the blouson look. Despite your reservations, I think the dress looks stylish on you! Thanks for the great tips!
