Carolyn, this neckline looks so good on you and with your cardigan. You have such a good eye for what looks good on you.

Carolyn, I just love this dress on you. It is classy and very slimming. You have inspired me to buy the pattern and give it a try. Prior to seeing your version I wouldn't have thought it would work for a curvy woman. Thank you.

This dress is fabulous on you! I am going to attempt a version of my own and keep my fingers crossed that I look as good as you do in it! :)

I love this dress on you! Wonderful job on your alterations! As I commented on your blog, I love it so much that I not only bought the pattern, but I bought the same fabric! Feel free to throw a drink on me (a la Dynasty) if you ever see me wearing it, but I couldn't help myself!

Another great dress. I love this one too. These dresses look really great on you!!

Christas said...
All three versions are wonderful!

Lety said...
All your dresses are great, and to think that one pattern, one style, can be made up to look so completely different. I've made the dress but haven't reviewed it yet, it was super easy.

Ann Smith said...
All 3 dresses look great although I especially love the border print one. I have this dress cut out and ready to sew. I hope it looks as good on me.

Thanks for pointing this pattern out! Your alteration notes are helpful to me.

This dress looks fesh and pretty! Nicely done!

love this version too! Carolyn, did you line this one? If yes, did you cut your lining from the dress pattern or did you draft a lining?
6/21/11 8:13 AM
cmarie12 said...
None of these are lined. I couldn't even begin to imagine how you would do that!

thank you for your input - I've been eyeing this pattern for a while. Your detailed info encourages me to try it! The cardigan adds even more style.
