Stunning! The fit is perfection and your plaid matching is absolutely amazing given all the seams in this dress. You do wear it well.

Wonderful review! I am SO happy you reviewed this pattern since I have it in my stash. I am now excited about making it up!

WOW WOW WOW I can't saw WOW too many times! The more expensive that a garment is directly relates to the cut. In this case you made a million dollar dress with superb matching and tailoring (or just plain darn good cutting and pressing) I have seen garments in stores that cost OVER $300 who have ill matched plaids and stripes. THIS GARMENT IS A TOUR DE FORCE! (looks great on you too!) PS The shoes are the perfect touch!

Wow! Gorgeous. Your OCD regarding matching the plaid certainly paid off as this dress looks very expensive and custom.

Okay, I already knew you were in the category of Mad Genius when it comes to sewing, but now it is official. Your plaid matching is of course top notch, and the fit is splendid. But you are SCARY. Scary good! But scary. In a way I love! But also fear, because it is somehow inhuman, the awesomeness of this. I love you! Don't hurt me!!

Sometimes being OCD is an asset! An absolutely stunning dress is your happy result. I wish I had anywhere to wear something like this, although I wouldn't probably go for the plaid, even with my own OCD issues :)

This dress has intrigued me with it's beautiful lines as made up in solid color. Now your plaid version is obsolutely the "rubiks cube" of matching plaids...quite the puzzle. Fantastic work and it looks lovely on you!

Love love the dress. Your matching of the plaid, especially in the back is impressive.

Beautiful matching of the plaids to create a stunning dress.

Your waist looks two sizes smaller due to the direction of plaid at the waist (not that you need it to look smaller but nice anyway). Love it.

Wow, thanks for posting here again, we learn so much from you! I'm adding this to all the tips I've gathered for my first attempt at sewing a plaid dress. Your dress looks top-notch!
