Wow, do I ever like how the stripes change direction. This is very flattering on you.

Your 1250 is fabulous and looks terrific on you. I like your choice of verticle stripe effect with belt.

I'm loving that fabric. At first glance it looked like stripes? But then I noticed its some type of chain links? Just lovely. The belt adds a nice touch. Very flattering!

Welcome to the party! I love the way the chain print works with the cowl. This is a great version!

You look fabulous in this dress! If you are not thrilled with it, I think you need to put it in Mary Nana's magic closet for a little while. The fabric is lovely and so is the dress. The stripes are slimming all the way up and then frame your face beautifully at the cowl. This is a definite winner. Your version has finally convinced me that I need to try this pattern too.

You look great in this. I say don't worry about the 'pooch' - you're nothing but chic and stylish.

I also like the stripe at the bodice. Your skin tone is so beautiful and this black and white really lights you up. This dress looks so much better made up by PR members than on the pattern photo. If the snug-ness makes you feel uncomfortable I wonder if you could try tying a large-ish, square, black scarf at the waist like this to even things out a bit. I think it looks great but one never grabs for those garments in the closet that are slightly clingy.

This is amazing in that geometric print. Very cool looking dress, and I like how you have belted it.

Another winning review, and your dress her turned out superbly. I especially like the way the stripes play on the bodice. Gorgeous!

Now then, *I* think that this dress looks terrific on you and the lines of the pattern work perfectly - the attention is on your face and the whole thing looks really nice and slimming!
