Very pretty dress. Just wondering whether you lined your dress. Or did you find that a lining was not needed.

Very beautiful dress! I think the length is perfect. You look amazing in both photos, but I would vote for the look without the belt.

I didn't really feel like this was a pattern for me until seeing your version. The asymmetry is gorgeous.

This is a very lovely dress, with and without the belt. The fabric choice is perfect. Your garments always have such a nice fit and this is no exception. Like your shoes too! Great job!

Absolutely beautiful. Love your choice of fabric and I agree it would be a fabulous LBD. I really enjoyed seeing all the things you've made in your flickr group.

Fantastic dress! I have the same fabric sitting at home waiting for a project. It's very pretty in person and it looks great in the dress you made! Well done.

What a beautiful dress! It fits you wonderfully, and the fabric is so perfect for it. I never even noticed this pattern in the catalog. I just might NEED it now. Thanks so much for your review!

Beautiful dress working with a difficult fabric.

I liked this pattern from the first time I saw it and your beautiful dress confirms that initial impression. It's probably a little too bare for me, but you look fantastic in it!

Well, this is just gorgeous, especially with the sash, and you wear it beautifully. The PLEATING is so cute, front AND back.

Soo smart!

Man, I think this is a knockout--so becoming to you! Yeah, and distinctive, as well. For that reason, I'd make it in two or three different fabrics.
