Wow, gorgeous. You have an excellent eye for knowing the cut and shape that work for you. And then to create it with such precision - professional finish..

Excellent dress, excellent style. This is a classic LBD: flexible yet statement making, and definitely not boring. It came out great also. I expect you just increased sales of that pattern.

Absolutely stunning. I saw when you posted at first and was wondering why you weren't going to enter the LBD contest. I went out to find this pattern but couldn't. I might have to order offline. Great job and happy belated Birthday.

I thought I had commented on this incredible dress the first time around, but I see that I slipped up, so I'm glad to get a second chance. Holy mackerel, Erica, this is off the charts. Amazingly gorgeous and perfectly suited to you. Look #3 kills me. I love it!

Nice work. It looks amazing.

Your review nearly brought me to tears! Firstly because you have done a fabulous job on what is a fabulous dress and secondly because I too attempted to make this for my 40th birthday this August but it ended in a zipper snafu. Must finish it off...

glad you listened to your many supporters & entered the competition - good luck! LOOOOOOOVE that orange fringed bag too BTW... As always, very glamourous, I swear you could wear a hessian sack & make it look classy! Love all your different looks - fantastic!

What a STUNNING dress! You look fabulous in it. You always make the most gorgeous dresses, but this one is particularly stupendous!

I'm late to the party, but I want to with you a belated happy birthday, and point out that clicking on that photo of you in that dress is *not* what I should've done while wearing sweats! Beautiful, glamorous dress; it suits you perfectly.

Wow and ditto all the above is about all I can say. You got your knockout dress and glad you had a great 40th!

OMG. Love this dress on you. My 50th birthday is 10 days away, and I'm inclined to try this pattern ! Great work. Super stylish.
Mazzygirl said... (9/27/10 7:01 PM) Reply
Erica, are you kidding? a change of accessories & bam, it's a daytime dress! (I see it with brown leather strappy shoes, chunky bangles etc) Enter it, its perfect!
Erica B. said... (9/27/10 6:02 PM) Reply
Thanks ReginaLit! I didn't think this dress was applicable for the LBD contest. I don't see how this dress could possibly be worn for a daytime look as well.
ReginaLit said... (9/27/10 5:34 PM) Reply
Happy B-day!!! You look fabulous! Did you consider entering this in the LBD contest? With a nice jacket or knit cardigan the same as the knit used it could work for a day look.

There is just nothing left to say but . . . magnificent!!! You rock that dress like no one else could! I may have to pick up this pattern myself (but I know I wouldn't wear it as well as you do).

This is an amazing dress. I can understand why your husband likes it so much - you look stunning in it! The gathering at the neck into the collar piece is really unusual and a beautiful design.
