The dress looks so much better than the drawing suggests. Lovely details. Very interesting review of Sandra's sizing. Thank you.

Wow, this dress is stunning on you!! Never would have thought to lengthen this but it is fabulous. And love your fabric!! (Sigh, why doesn't my JoAnns have this?)

Fantastic dress, I agree, Sandra is the best sewing instructor.

I am so impressed - this is one of those patterns where the photo and drawings just make me shrug my shoulders, and yet your dress is wonderful. I met Sandra once, too, and I agree, she's a sweetheart.

I love it! I think I made B4789 in this same fabric and I L-O-V-E it! I had not considered this pattern for a tunic or anything else but I will now!! Thanks

This looks so cute! This looks so much more 'spring' than the pattern photo. Thanks for the helpful review.

Ooh, I LOVE this dress on you! The pattern picture is super boring and I never gave it one glance, but your dress is so cute! Thanks for the inspiration!

Just bought this pattern so looking for tips. This 'dress' looks really good on you. I'm a bit short so I suspect if I made the longer version it would be just the right length for me.

Hi Becky, I just bought this pattern, AND I have that same fabric in my stash. I bought that fabric for a different pattern but now I am rethinking it. Did you use the larger cowl or the smaller one?

I am making this pattern right now. Your longer version is just beautiful!!

This is lovely. Good call making it a dress. It is very becoming.

Wow, I just picked up this pattern, and set aside this fabric! I really don't need a dress, so will make the tunic-but oh, it is so tempting to copy your wonderful results!!
