This looks terrific on you! Love the knit too and how it changes the look into as you say more weighted and drapey.

Lovely summer dress, relaxed but stylish.

A cute and original dress. I like the curled bands at the neck, and the way the front seems to be long enough to cover your knee, unlike the pattern illustration.

Ann: I love the dress and think the knit version w/ bias trim is a terrific idea. Beautiful (amazingly beautiful) necklace is the perfect accent. I think you have THE BEST sense of style.

Wow! I also love unusual styles, at least to dream about, so seeing yours is quite inspiring. Beautiful color and neat binding technique. You look super in this dress!

Ann, LOVE seeing your reviews! You always are making such interesting clothing! This looks wonderful in the knit! I think that I have about 10 yards of green in my stash.....Do you know where I could find a tut on the way you did the bindings? Nora :)

I like your dress better than the pattern illustration. The neckline and armhole finishing add much to the design, very cleaver. I think you will find yourself slipping into this dress many times in the summer. Very comfy. I could double as a swimsuit cover-up.

I'm thrilled to see this made up Anne, so much better than the pattern view.Its very very striking but also wearable and looks fab ! As for the nightgown, well I think you are Wendy in Peter Pan - how about an audition ?!! Stunning.

I would have never picked out this pattern with out reading you Aunti Allyns review. This dress looks great on you all. It would make a great dress to kick around the lake in, in the summers in Arkansas. Thanks for review.

Very nice! I also bought this pattern after Auntie Allyn's review. I was thinking about a knit, so thanks for testing it out!!

I love this. Knit is the way to go. I can't wait to make it myself.

Like the dress. If the volume is an issue, use a wide rope or macrame or woven leather belt. Trap some of the volume or sling it low. Gives you an option. This looks very Issey Miyake, Rei Kawabuko or Yohji Yamamoto. Very Japanaese 1980s Post Industrial Chic

The thing I like best about this pattern is the lovely priviledge of seeing Karen Jorgensen ( I hope I have her name right) modeling Vogue patterns again. She was an inspiring manniquen and a radiant, intelligent woman of style in the Vogue pattern books of the later 1960's and '70s...and now the two thousand teens. She embodies a complex truth and beauty in women that invites individual expression in self presentation, which is the reason many women choose to sew.

Very creative - especially the neckline - I wouldn't have thought of it! Thanks for the inspiration.
