Great dress! I was thinking of making this the next thing on my list and you've sold me! I love the piping!

This is so pretty! I'm looking at this pattern for a woven fabric as I write this. I love your piping and may steal that idea!

what a fantastic looking dress and love the white piping accents - I think I may have to cut this one out too

Pretty, pretty, pretty! I just got my Burda issue and I see why you love this dress so much. BTW, zombie or not, the dress looks great on you!

nice job, I really like the back view. You did well to sew this up already: I only got my issue today :D

July 2011??? Wow...I haven't even gotten that issue in the mail yet, and you've already made a KILLER dress from it! The piping really kicks it up! Great work!

I'm still a little intimidated by Burda with their scant instructions but a little dress like this makes me want to try harder. This and so many of this summer's posts of dresses just remind me why sewing is the best. There are no RTWs in my neck of the woods that could come close to this dress in style and quality. I love it!!! Congratulations. This is a rea!l winner

The piping accents the pretty shape of the neckline and sleeves. Great choice of fabric and trim.

I love it! I'm in a big piping fixation right now so I love that detail in particular. Great dress, and I agree, great bones!

Wow -- gorgeous!! What an amazing, classy dress. The pattern isn't sized for petite, though, is it? I'm assuming you just mean you "petited" it.

Fabulous! It's great to know this works well in a stable knit, too! I love the added piping here, also...
