The trim makes the dress a standout. The belt also.

This is another one of those instances where the consumer's product/result should have been on the pattern cover. That looks soooo much better than what's on the pattern cover. So Cute!

Your dress looks so much nicer than the ones on the pattern envelope. It's very nice and looks lovely on you. Good job!

Lovely pattern, fabric and trim combination to make a perfect dress. Your dress is more inspiring than the pattern pictures.

You really made this your pattern your own. Of course you had a lot of compliments on this one. It looks great on you!

This is such a visual delight! You have incredible insight as to what would make this WOW because the pattern envelope was less than inspiring.Very VERY NICE!

I'm late in commenting--as I apparently wasn't checking PR when it appeared, but as I looked at your blog, I saw this dress and thought that it really is quite similar to the Serendipity dress that I just reviewed (and you commented on). This is a darling dress--and you look great in it!

Can you be any cuter? The color yellow looks so fabulous on you and your dress is gorgeous. I know I'm late to comment, but I'm just now seeing it. Great work! :-)
