What an absolutely fabulous dress! I love how you altered the pattern to work for you yet still feature that amazing collar!

You look great, thanks for the review I will make the change at the waist to get this look as well.

I would have never dreamed this dress came from that pattern. :o) I really like your modifications (elimination of the waist seam and the elastic at the hem). You look SO good in this! I love that draped hood/collar, too. :o)

I love your dress and the changes you made to it. The fabric looks wonderful.

Fabulous dress. I like how you've removed the blousing at the waist, it makes it very sleek.

I wouldn't have looked twice at this pattern either, but your dress is great. Your tweed-looking knit is such a wonderful selection for this. (The camera flashes I think penetrate fabric more than regular room lighting. At least, that's my theory.)

Another beautiful garment sewn by you! I can almost recognize your garments in the gallery without seeing your face. You have such a distinctive style. Soooo pretty!

This is a stunning dress - even nicer in person, I may add, because it is impossible to see how beautiful the fabric is from the picture. The dress is very flattering.

I really like this on, I wouldn't have even looked at this pattern otherwise. Now I'm thinking of mat'l for it!!! Very nice and great fit, love your choice of mat'l and alterations for this dress.

I like your fabric choice. It's a good match to the pattern and a stylish winter dress.

I like that, too. A smart dress.
