Thank you so much for your thorough review. I feel so lucky that we seem to be about the same size, need similar adjustments and have similar taste. I want to make this up as a dress for Christmas eve church services.

What a beautiful, beautiful dress/tunic. This pattern is extremely lovely on you--showcasing your swan-like neck, pretty face and striking new hairdo. Looks to me like you are ready for a wonderful occasion in your new dress. But the nice thing a bout that dress, is that it can be worn to many types of events. If/when you shorten it, take it in increments and enjoy each length for what it offers. This review was so thorough as always and I appreciate each and every detail. Even when I don't make your specific patterns, I learn valuable information to apply in another sewing situation.

Beautiful dress - looks really good on you and thanks for the review - have this pattern and have taken it out and put back a zillion times because I was afraid of the "preggy" look I migt get - it seems I don't have to worry about that as on you it looks just fine - not at all too full. So will have ago at it in a shorter than tunic length

Very, very flattering on you. The knit looks great... I love the longer length.

Beautiful dress Annette. Even though you intended for some of the stripes to be horizontal, it ended up looking smashing with all vertical lines. I really like all of the pleats especially those very interesting ones on the sleevesl Lovely work as always :-)

Lovely dress and a very flattering color on you. I also really like your new PR icon photo.

Very lovely dress - well done!

I love this combination on you of the dark, rich color, the deep V neckline and the elegant, slim, cut-on sleeve. It works! And the jewelry works, too. If you do decide to cut down the length, I think you'll have a very sleek tunic that you'll want to reach for every time you go in your closet. Great review! (p.s., that little PIPSQUEAK is a riot, isn't she?)

You look like a movie star! This dress is very flattering on you. The neckline is perfect. Are you over 40?

A stylist dress. The front detail is especially nice. I like the fabric, too.
