Great dress--and I love your (is it new?) hair style.

Your review made me laugh out loud--but the dress is stunning on you. Trust me: Make that number up in something black and watch the responses when you go out.

This is gorgeous on you, stretched out neck and all.

I'm so glad I wasn't drinking anything when I read this. LOL I think we can all relate to the urge for punching a dress. Been there, done that. ;) I think this looks great on you, despite the issues you had with it.

You always write the best reviews and the dress is seriously cute on you. I can't see the stitching from here. :)

Have you experimented with clear elastic for your knit necklines? Sometime it helps with baggyness, and it might work for a square neckline. Your dress is really cute and your review gave me a big laugh.

This dress looks great on you, and the review was both informative AND entertaining!

Not only do you look great in this dress, but your review made me laugh out loud, which isn't easy early in the morning.

You look fantastic -- I hope someone takes you out somewhere in that dress. The back is why I avoided this pattern (bought McCalls 6112 instead), but maybe next time you could redraw the square neckline as a shallow curve, then use a narrow binding turned to the inside (a la Jalie), and topstitch, maybe?

Love this dress and it looks great on you. "fruitlessness of actually punching a dress." made me laugh out loud. Been there!

To spite all your frustrations it looks FAB! Love the dress, fit and fabric!

You know...I made this dress with the cowl front and back and it irritates me...but I love the dress once it's on and I forget about it. I need to mess with it and see if I can figure out a good back solution. Despite your problems, I think yours looks great! I love the print!

LOL @ "fruitlessness of actually punching a dress." Fruitless, maybe. Freeing, oh yeah. Thanks for the laugh and review.

Turned out very cute! :)

Now that's a party dress! I like it a lot. You know, lots of movie stars stay our of the sun and are pale too. It's just too much to worry about. You look great.
