Such beautifully-fitting and sexy dresses. Beautifully made, too, judging from the inside photo. I bet you feel great wearing them.

Fabulous work choosing your fabrics (and of course, in sewing them up)! They are so different but you make such splendid use of both. I have the VW fabric stashed and hope to use it half as well as you have. What great dresses!

Love the way this looks so different in the day and evening fabrics! Very flattering and a great fit.

I really like your choices of fabrics. The sturdiness of the brocade being snug with no pulling just looks fabulous. The drape falling away from the legs is so evening appropriate and fetching! The summery version with flats, perfection! Good pattern, good visualization too!

You look fabulous! It's nice to find undergarment friendly patterns. Strapless is a 4 letter word imo! ;)

I made two versions of this dress 4 years ago, same sort of idea--one was rayon and summery, one was a flocked taffeta for a Christmas party. But it was before I understood about needing a FBA so they didn't fit right. Then I tried it again last summer, but I still didn't get a good outcome. Do you have any tips you can share to fit a busty lady? Your's looks awesome and fits very well without showing too much! I tried to post a comment on your blog, but BLogger won't let Google users post comments unless the comment box comes up in a separate window (or you have Name/URL option, which you don't).

These two views are just perfect for the OPML contest. Your work is superb and shows that just changing the fabric will take a pattern from day to evening. Nice work!

Wow! This is a perfect argument for making your own clothes, it's beautiful.

Beautiful dress and fit.

This is such a gorgeous dress! It really accentuates your figure in all the right places. And that fabric is beautiful, the blue really does stand out.

This is such a great shape on you. I really need to buy this pattern.

Wow! Stunning on you. Great idea to make the straps wider.

Great color on you!

Wow, that is a great dress! Nice work!

If I looked this good in a dress I'd make at least 3 more. Everything about this really works for you. How wonderful when it all comes together.

You look so fantastic! You need to be taken out and shown off! Glad to hear it is bra friendly and easy to sew up.

You look so gorgeous and glamorous! Though in the pic, the blue dominates. Maybe the flash?
