Very nice interpretation of the LBD. Love it! Thank you for explaining how you did the alterations as I will have to do them.

Val, the dress looks really really nice on you: you really took the pattern and made it your own. It looks like you will get a lot of wear out of it.

Looks great, I love the cut, and its casual elegance. I missed this pattern in Vogue's site, but am now tempted to try it.

great dress; thanks for your review of this interesting pattern. It's useful to see the details of the design in hard-to-photograph black.

Yours sure looks nicer than the envelope photo. It's a nice dress, very pretty yet edgy.

This is a very interesting dress. I like your lunch/dinner views. I have the pattern, and now I'm tempted to make it soon. Your review will be helpful.

Thank you. I've fixed it.

Very nice. Good on you for doing a (relatively) casual take on the LBD. (You might want to check your photo link; it isn't working properly.)
