A lovely dress, just right for that fabric. Your techniques are clever, too. I would not have thought of pleating skirt lining rather than gathering it, but what a good idea!

Great review and your tutorial on youtube is very good - I use a similar method for my cami tops too. Like your version of the dress

Who doesn't love a cute dress with a boat neckline? You have put a nice spin on this pattern that I think would also work for me ;-). I love it! The pearls are a nice touch too!

That is a lovely dress and looks very classy on you.

I like your dress, but can't understand the neckline being called a boatneck which I would take to mean wide and with a shallow curve. The Burda photo looks a bit more that shape, so maybe your alterations changed it? also the back neck looks quite scooped down, so I'm a bit puzzled.

Beautiful dress, Trena. I like the design changes you made for this dress. I may have to copy them. :-) Excellent review.

Very nice fabric. Your changes were interesting. I would love to see this style as in the line drawing as well. How about it being perfect for the dressy "little black/red/silver/gold" dress? Holidays in DC and all that? It is a lovely pattern. Your dress is airy and quite lovely.

Very pretty dress. You are right about this fabric working well for this style. Great review as usual.

Lovely marriage of fabric and style for you! A little lower front neckline would be flattering.
