Your dress sounds very nice, but your links aren't working properly. :-(

Very cool design and extremely flattering on you.

I sort of fixed the links. I always seem to have problems with Photobucket, so I uploaded to Flicker. I still don't know why my gallery picture doesn't open.

Perfect dress and great fit. Pity about the draglines in the back, but they will be different with each way you stand or sit. The front is very flattering. Great look.

Nancy, you look simply beautiful in your Project Photo! Just enough draping to be exactly in style, while flattering your shapely body. (And although you don't like the draglines in the back, you must admit that they nicely feature your curvy bottom; just a little bit sexy.) Love your red peep-toe shoes, too. Lovely, Lily

This looks really great on you! I'm sorry you had to do so many changes to it but I think the end result was totally worth it. I was considering making this for my future SIL but I think I'll choose something else now since I'd be sewing blind.

Stunning, and I love your shoes. I have the same resolution - to use some of my Patrones and KnipModes before they're hopelessly out of style.

Computer hiccuped and double posted, but the dress is pretty e nough to comment twice anyway.

Hiccup again. Drat.

You sure worked on this one. It looks like it was worth it. You have more stamina than I.

Fun and interesting design. It looks very nice on you!

Nancy, you definitely inspire me with your chic style and determination. You look wonderful in this dress and I too find it a challenge to do the sewing "geometry thing" without directions.
