Congratulations on doing a great job while learning lots of new techniques. If I were making an LBD, I would choose exactly the same color too!

I love the dress, and I especially love the day wear picture - you're setting a new standard for "country casual"!

Very pretty dress and flattering on you. Good for you for hanging in there and correcting your mistakes. It is quite a sense of accomplishment isn't it!

I hope your links get fixed. I managed to get a peek at your daywear look (by removing the extra http) and it is AWESOME! Great job!

3/4 sleeves were the way to go with this dress - you look fantastic in it!

You did a beautiful job and it's wonderful you got to wear it to a wedding. I think 3/4 sleeves are the best invention Lovely and congrats on the first dress.

I'm making a dress for a wedding now, so I know how you felt making this. Your dress is beautiful and I loved your review. Keep them coming.

Excellent job on the fit. This dress looks great on you and you're right, the neckline is very flattering on you. I recommend looking at Kwik Sew 2694 for a knit top that is similar and very flattering.

This dress still looks so fabulous and classy on you. It absolutely must be a LBD pattern for you. You do realize you wear this dress much better than the fashion model on the pattern envelope, don't you?

TerriSewCrazy said...
Nora, this is fantastic! Love the shortened sleeves, and it looks like you've been sewing for years! (And fitting things also!) Keep it up - you can easily convert this pattern to a top since you've already fitted it to yourself. Absolutely LOVE it - and it looks even better than the first pictures you posted!! GREAT job!!

Well done Nora. It is perfect on you.
