Beautiful dress and so nice to see it in a fabric that isn't just for special occasions. Thanks for the detailed review about your pattern alterations. Too bad I did not read your review until I struggled with this pattern myself. I can't wait to see your next version.

Beautiful dress - thank you so much for sharing. It's nice to see it in a pretty print like yours. I love this pattern, but alas, have no place to wear a fancy silk dress. Now I know I can make a gorgeous dress from that pattern that is suitable for work. Yours is lovely!

Always SO interesting to see the muslin - the collar is huge and I think your alteration is spot on. You look fab and the fabric is divine.

Smokin' hot and elegant! Thanks for all your good comments and photos. It's very helpful to see this made up in a print since the pattern photo is in solid. Lovely all around!

Just beautiful ... I'll be picking up this pattern soon, so your collar advice will help me a lot. BTW, Nordstrom's is selling this same style dress in a solid for $300! Aren't you glad you can sew?

I was just admiring this pattern in the Vogue catalog today. Great dress and great review. You should definitely make another one.

Love your dress! I too, am very short-waisted in the back and it would be wonderful if you could post a tip on how you did your alteration. I am still fairly new to altering and would appreciate it if you ever have a chance.

This dress looks very nice on you....and you've done such a nice job of fitting and sewing it up. You should be very pleased with the result.

What a beautiful dress. I loved this pattern the first time I saw it. Now, by seeing it made up in a print, I love it even more. It will definitely be added to my stash. Thanks for the wonderful, helpful review. Your dress is gorgeous.

A really lovely Easter dress. I liked seeing what you did with the collar--a good modification, I think.

What a perfect dress. You achieved a beautiful fit. Sewing the muslin was worth the time because the collar change makes such a difference. Lovely fabric, too. And cool shoes!

Very pretty dress! I may have to try your idea of reading instructions out loud for clarity the next time I make a confusing pattern. Thanks so much for your very helpful review!

Very pretty! Your muslin was worth it 'cause this fits perfectly. Great job!

I love this pattern and I *love* your dress more! I really want it, but straight, fitted skirts don't have any place in my lifestyle - do you think the skirt would look okay with some flare or fullness in the back? (Primary transportation is by bicycle and if I can't ride it in an outfit, it won't be worn.)

I was amazed to see this pattern made up already! I just saw it last week on Vogue's website! You did a wonderful job on fitting and I'm impressed that you took the time to make a muslin...but it paid off! I LOVE you fabric as well!
