Very cute. This dress is too cute to be chopping wood. Lol This would look cute with sandals.

Holy Ka-Smoley you look **gorgeous** in this dress!!! It is classy, elegant and amazing! This one I have to do and I hope I can look half as pretty as you do! Thank you very much for the encouragement and review :-)

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!

Nora, the dress is great. It look wonderful on you. I love the sleeves that length.

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!

The dress is beautiful and looks terrific on you. And a perfect fit too! Congratulations!

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... (10/27/09 11:20 PM) Reply
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.

Wow, I didn't realize how new to sewing you were. This is fantastic work! It's a great job and I hope it has given you the confidence to do more complicated sewing!
