My first thought on seeing the picture was, "How chic!" I was surprised to read that you don't love the dress. Maybe if you put it aside for a little while it will grow on you. It definitely looks great on you.

I think it is very cute on you. Does not look like a sack. The belt gives it shape!

Thank everybody for the love! I'm woken up this morning and am feeling much better about it. In fact, I'm going to make myself wear it today, and make myself like it more!

I think your dress is very pretty and looks great on you with the belt.

I think the dress looks great with the belt, so I hope you'll be inspired to wear it, even though it is not what you expected. You look great!

Oh I love the fabric and I think the dress fits you great for a loose fitting garment. The belt is perfect! Very nice! Keep wearing it!

This looks FABULOUS on you. I think it's perfect for someone with a small frame like yours. Beautiful dress! (P.S. At first I thought your photos were a fashion shot from a magazine. ;) )

I think the dress looks really good, but I know what you mean about feeling "meh." Usually every knitting project I make ends up thrown across the room when I'm done with it. There it sits, for about a week, until I decide I like it. ;)

I think it is a gorgeous dress, the belt is the perfect accessory. You look great.

I agree ... Looks great ... Suits your body type ( & hey you can still cycle in it!)

It's definitely better than an expensive Liberty sack. It looks quite chic to me; it just needs to be accessorized properly, and I think you've got it just about right. It's also a good way to use that fabric, which I've seen in Tessuti but without feeling inspired by it.
