This is super cute! You did a great job. I've seen this one done a lot in either very pale prints or dark solid fabrics, but I quite like it in the darker print.

Erika I think your fit of this dress is perfect! It really looks very nice on you. I just got my first Collette Pattern in the mail and I am so impressed with the pattern and instructions.

Wow, this dress looks wonderful on you. I haven't really liked the look of this pattern in the past, but now I have changed my mind.

I think you are the person Colette Patterns had in mind when they designed this dress. I can't imagine that it could look better on anyone else.
