Classic dress! The seam lines add to the style, yet it is, hmm, minimalist! This really is a great "little Black Dress" - you can dress it up or down, classic style. I may need to go find this pattern..... Sack dress - really doesn't describe the final product!

I love that it is loose but by no-means shapeless, and you look so elegant. :) The subtle details in this pattern are great; thanks for this review!

What gorgeous seams! It looks great on you too. If made a bit shorter, it would make a good belted tunic on you.

I think this is a classic dress. Well constructed too. I think it is very flattering on you.

I love that dress you did a wonderful job.... I made the one with cargo pockets and am still waiting for weather I can wear it in.

Itīs great! I love "sack" dresses too and you are defenitely not alone with your opinion about this kind of dresses. In the May issue of Burda magazine (no. 111) there is another one, which is very pretty too. ("Queen of Mayhem" sewed it and called it Egret dress. You can find her in the internet). I sewed it too and it is much shorter and very, very easy to sew.
