A great idea with the back, Sandra. Your dress is so lovely and flattering on you!

Nice looking final version. I really like how you did the back. Georgette fabric is a bugger for me to work with, but I must say you did a very nice job and your dress looks great on you.

Sandra, it sounds great, but unfortunately, I can't see the photo.

Can't see it either. Whaaa!

I've given up on Yahoo photos. I just switched to Shutterfly. Hope everyone can see the pics now.

Sandra, lovely dress. I have one in a similar color and wear it all the time in our loooong summers. I have found that you don't make your bust size in this dress or the shoulders will swim.

What a great idea for the back. I love it!

I can see it now. Very comfortable looking and pretty.

Lovely detail on the back. Beautiful fabric.

Great idea for the back with the loops and tie back.

MaryBeth said...
Oh my, I just *knew* I had to see your pictures! Just lovely and so very clever, SandraB!

That is so pretty on you. And with the back view of your alterations, it's easy to see that it would have been much too loose unaltered. Clever idea!

I just love this dress pattern. I guess I need to break down and buy it now. Thank you for the tip on shoulder size - I'll keep that in mind. Your dress is lovely, and so is your yard. Very inviting looking!

That dress looks great on you. Very nice job!

This dress looks great on you, and the loops and ties are a wonderful addition. What a clever save.

How clever you are! I'll try to remember you back alteration, sounds like it would come in handy on many different designs.

Very pretty! I like the modification you made to the back.

Sandra! How cute! Love your RTW looking fix on the back.

A very feminine-looking dress without being ruffly - and your idea for the back is great. Don't you love it when a problem turns into an opportunity for a designer-type detail? Great inspiration.

I really like your interpretation of this pattern -- very flattering and comfortable looking too. I want to try your back fix sometime.

I love your dress Sandra. The back lacing is the perfect remedy for the extra ease. Your fabric choice is beautiful, too.

Well, aren't you clever? That loop and tie solution for the back is brilliant and it looks wonderful.

I'm checking out the reviews for this pattern, and yours is really nice. Your fabric choice is great.
