Wow, what a great dress! I wasn't initially drawn to this in the magazine (I agree that the skirt is too tight on the model), but your version has definitely changed my opinion. It looks really chic.

Looking great. I must make this too.

Um....I am not believing that this pattern suits me very well (even though I love how it looks on you), but reading your " conclusion" makes me want to try one anyway!

I would have totally passed on this one until I saw yours. Great dress -- one I plan to make soon!

Okay, you've talked me into it. This is the second review in a row where my first thought was "much nicer than the magazine version." They're doing something wrong, but you sure didn't. Great dress.

Love the dress, Allie. One question, wide are the armholes? Can you see one's undergarments from the side view?

Very cute dress!! I wasn't too excited about this style when I first saw it but your review and pictures have totally changed my mind. I have a piece of fabric in stash that I am also not too excited about that will be perfect for this dress. After your enthusiastic review I think I will have to make it!!! I bet it ends up being a favorite.

Great looking dress, and after seeing it made up, I'm eager to make one, too.

wow, looks great. I had disregarded this pattern, but your version and the other recent review have changed my mind. How great is that- one dot and fabulous!

More evidence that fellow PRs' dresses of this pattern is much better than Burda's! Lovely dress on you!
