Trendy, trendy as usual! You do wear this outfit so well and it is beautifully accessorized.

I love the fact that you used a knit for this. I think especially in the neckline area it falls much nicer and more softly than a woven fabric would. Not everyone could wear this dress, but you pull it off with great pizzazz. You have a wonderful sense of style.

wow, i was waiting for a review of this dress from either you or Ann - really cute. I like the way the stripes show off the seams and pockets.

I've been waiting to see this new SW pattern reviewed and so glad to see a couple of reviews now posted! You did a fantastic job, Dorothy. Your rendition and presentation are a knock out with your choice of color, fabric, and stripe size. All combine to make a striking look.

Very fun pattern and I agree with the other reviewers - yours looks so much better than the pattern illustration. Love the stripes!

This dress is a perfect match of design and fabric choice. I love that you know how to choose the right garment syle for your body type. I love your sophisticated style. The jumper looks great on you. Thanks for the review.

Wow. This looks so much better than the pattern illustration. The stripes knock it out of the park and your styling with the boots, t-shirt and bracelet really rocks the look. I must make it now, in a stripe.

Wow, I love what you did with this pattern! The tucks look great, I prefer them to the bubble hem in the drawing. As always, your taste is impeccable.

What a very unique and cute jumper! The striped fabric is perfect for this pattern!

L ove it! I can't wait for my pattern to arrive. I like the pockets. Sewing Workshop patterns are great for people with small busts.

Fabulous, I love the stripe and the fact that you used a knit. I think it softened the lines of the dress.

Oooh, I love it in the stripe knit! And, I agree, those pockets on a busty frame - not as good. I love the tucks you've added to the back as well. Very cute!
