Still haven't sewn this dress so am rereading all the reviews. I love your version and I think the belt adds a great touch.

I'm in the midst of finalizing this dress (neck and sleeves). It was challenging, but I was up for it. Yours was one of the better looking dresses of this Vogue pattern. I used painters tape (blue) to mark the numbers to this "puzzle piece" pattern. It was a life saver as I don't think I would have been able to match up pieces correctly. Maybe, if I make this dress again, it'll be easier. Nice job -- this dress looks great on you.

Stripes were a great choice and it looks lovely on your goddess frame. Wonderful job!

I was just eyeing this pattern, so I'm so glad to see your review. I LOVE yours -- and to think this is your muslin. :o) MOST DEFINITELY a WEARABLE muslin. I'm 5'8" too. I was wondering how long it was, as from what I see, they don't tell on the pattern envelope. This dress really looks great on you!

I have to agree with everyone else! The stripes look fantastic. I also made this dress; have yet to post the review, but I also agree with everything you said, did I already say I love, love the stripes. :)

I did not really like this pattern when I saw it in the book. I thought it sould look schlumpy. But I love it on you with the fabric you used. It changes my mind about the pattern completely.

This looks great in the stripe. I may have to add it back to my list of dresses to sew based on your result.

Stripe have always scared me, but you wear them with aplomb. Definitely a risky pattern but you pulled it off well.

Love it!!! Thanks for the review.

Thanks for all of the compliments. If you do not use 4 way stretch you may want to go up a size. The upper part of the dress is fitted.

Love it. Thanks to you and Ann Smith for making this up. Question does the fabric have to be 4-way stretch?

Very nice dress. I think the stripes bring out the details of the dress. Very nice!
