The dress look stunning on you. You did an excellent job and it actually looks better than the model.

OMG your construction is absolutely FLAWLESS! Your pic looks better than the one on the Vogue pattern - no lie. This is one of 7 unfinished projects sitting in my stash because I got VERY discouraged while working on it. I made the mistake of buying knit fabric without the necessary "body" so this one will be a muslin too - IF I ever finish it! You have given me the motivation to do that. I might be contacting you for pointers whenever I pick this project back up :-)

Wow! Now that's a little white dress! This looks great on you! It looks very elegant and shophisticated....expensive even! You've got yourself a winner with this one! Nice work!

Now that I've seen the big photo thanks to Vonnevo, I think it's FANTASTIC! Looks really good!

This dress is beautiful! I would never have thought it was a toile. And thanks for the height info for us "height impaired" people. The pattern would be great to make up into the color block styles that will be popular this fall.

Thanks for all the lovely comments! This is my first review so it is great to get some feedback. Sorry the photo was so small...newbie teething problems...I think I have now fixed this and also added another photo showing the front pleats.

Wow is that a beautiful dress! I hadn't noticed that pattern before. I'd love to see a bigger pic of your work. :)

I think the dress might be stunning. However, your project photo is teeny-tiny. Could you enlarge it so that when we click on it we can see the details?

I love this on you! I really like this pattern every time I look at it...yours is lovely!

That looks better than the actual Vogue photo.

Gorgeous! You should feel very comfortable wearing this -- you look smashing.

Oooh, another review, thank you so much...and from a Petite, no less! Please try to fix the photo, would love a better look.

It looks gorgeous but your main pic comes up very small. Could you try to enlarge it, so that we can see it properly?

Very pretty! I can't wait to see the new look in a darker fabric. I'm also a big fan of making it up first in another fabric to see how it all works out. Nice job!
