Sorry you had such a hard time with this pattern. But it's good that you can wear it after all that hard work! Thanks for the detailed review. I am nowhere near your level of sewing expertise so I will stay away from this pattern!

Beautiful dress! Thanks for such a thorough review. I love the pattern and your dress is really inspiring me. Since I don't have much opportunity to wear dresses, do you think this would work as a tunic, without the skirt part? Despite the work of the pintucks, I think the results are worth it.

Looks lovely. It would be nice to see a photo of whole garment.

All that pleating looks lovely in your picture--what a lot of hard work.

To Moushka -- it would definitely work as a tunic. I had hoped to wear it that way myself, with leggings, but it turned out to be too long. That said, I wore it to dinner last night bare-legged with sandals and it was perfect. To JaneBe: thanks so much! I did have a whole garment photo but it didn't upload. (I'll get the hang of this eventually!) And the photo didn't tell you much more about the garment anyway. To all: When I finished this dress, I was just bursting with ideas to improve it, and, though I always write extensive notes to myself on the pattern envelope, it didn't seem like enough. I googled the pattern # and VOILA! up comes this site! What a fantastically useful place!

Great review. I'm a tiny pleat lover, but yikes, this pattern sounds scary! Would love to see more photos!!

To Donna Mel: the pleats are tedious, but not scary, once you discard the instructions ;) And very, very pretty.

Thanks so much for writing this review! I bought this pattern on Ebay and am going to make it for our anniversary dinner on the 25th. Your call on lengthing the top and sewing the casing (as 1 piece, not 3) is a great tip for this pattern. It's one of those things you wouldn't think about until you started sewing. Kudos, Foozy, you've made my life easier. Beautiful job on the dress. Great review.
