You know, I wouldn't have thought this dress style would work well for our figure type, but it really does. Great job, congratulations on all your sewing.

I love this dress! It is fabulous on you and very flattering. I think it would work on me too, even though I'm 5ft 9in. The bottom band is the perfect touch, and it looks like it keeps the hem "out" versus clinging. Sigh. Now I need ANOTHER pattern!

This is a fabulous dress! How satisfying to finish a project with a fabric that you've been really wanting to use. The high neckline really suits you!

This dress is so very chic and so very you, nicegirl. I would never have guessed you didn't start off liking the print because you have made the best and most inspired use of the fabric in the dress. Love the horizontal bottom band and and the black belt you have used to complete the look.

This is a beautiful dress that is very flattering on you. It's the perfect match of fabric to pattern. You really know how to pull it all together - the fabric, the pattern, and the way you use accessories.

Very pretty. You handled the stealth stripes to great advantage.

Love your design feature of the band at the bottom. :) Great dress, fun neckline.

Super cute - I like it done up much better than the pattern photo! Thanks for another great review. My new motto is going to be "wtf its a knit"!

This dress looks fab on you. I bought the pattern but then decided it wasn't so nice afterall. You just changed my mind!

I love this dress! (& I agree with you that the bottom band adds to the overall look.)

Okay, I looked at this pattern and completely passed it by - they really didn't emphasize the triple keyhole and that makes it look much more interesting. Love your fabric choice for it - and yes, I can completely understand one piece of fabric weighing on you more than a wall of stash. Brava.

What a looker of a dress! I vote that you and your dress be featured on the pattern envelope.

Your dress looks so much better than the pattern envelope. How did you find blue tights that match so well?

It's chic and distinctive. Well done.

Your dress looks so much better than the line drawing! Much nicer drape and fit. I would never have guessed that the hem band was anything but intended! The stealth stripes work very well.

Totally loving this on you. You are right that it makes you look both curvy and thin! Cute, quirky and flattering--perfect.

Gorgeous dress! I agree that the band at the hem really adds to this dress. Thanks for the review!

This is terrifically cute, and it enhances the bust line very well!
