Nice dress :) I am 5'0" and really appreciate your comments on the length. I love this dress on you with and without the belt. After reading your review, I may make this too!

This dress looks great on you, the fabric, color and style all work together so well.

It looks like a great pattern and you got great results even though you had to talk the fabric around to your point of view.

Thanks for the great review and all the lovely pics! I am a petite pear too and thought this pattern would only work for tall willowy types. Yours looks great and the belt really works!

Thank you for this review, its very helpful! I keep looking at this pattern too as its very popular but had similar concerns about the lack of definition in general and my similarly petite stature. The belt looks great!

Sewiing Sue, I just edited the review to add that I usually need to shorten the bodice between bust and shoulders, but hadn't. So you may not need this alteration.

Great color and belt looks good. Thanks for tip on shortening between shoulder and bust and on length. Who would guess?
