Your dress looks wonderful on you! Thank you for reviewing this pattern. I want to make it for a special event this year.

Lovely dress. It is a great style for you, and you got the fit just right. Vogue prints the finished garments measurements on the pattern. Compare them to your body measurements and the difference is the wearing ease they have built into the pattern. I always do this and I frequently make a smaller size than the patten envelope indicates, because I prefer less wearing ease.

It's too bad you had to spend so much time adjusting the fit, but it turned out gorgeous. I agree with the previous poster - the neckline is very nice.

Very pretty. I especially like the neckline. Nice job.

Well done, its a loevely dress and Vogue are notorious for being one of the harder pattern houses to use. Sad that the dress ended up too big when you went by the pattern measurements on the envelope - what a pain! Though the end result is great and I'm sure you will get a lot of use out of such a cute dress :)

I'm unable to enlarge your photo, so it's hard to see any detail. Sounds good, though.
