Way too cute. I love it. I live in Philadelphia and I love Jomar. They have awesome deals!!! They just had a half-price sale on all fabrics. I have way too much fabric, so I didn't go.

Beautiful. I have this pattern and have been putting off making it. You may have pushed me over the edge. Love your fabric choice.

Well your perseverance with fit has paid off! Your dress looks lovely and fits your perfectly. Thanks for the links to your fitting adjustments..these are really helpful. I am curious as to why you used a different sleeve rather than altering the Vogue sleeve to a more capped style if that was what you were looking for?

I think it suits you really well, in colour and style. I am always impressed with how much care you take in getting it to fit your figure so well. Wish I had as much patience!

THIS is lovely! I really like your yellow garments - they are very flattering on you. This is an elegant dress.

I have always really liked the neckline on this, but didn't realize it was designed for knits. Even better! Your stretchy woven version came out beautifully. Love that print on you! I also like the slight flare to the skirt. Thanks for another helpful review!

Beautiful dress!!! Looks great on you. It was worth the time to put it aside and think it through. Great job!!! I need to get a magic closet.

This is such a cheerful dress, and very flattering to you. Your "magic closet" together with your ingenuity gave a great result.

Very cute -- well worth your time and effort!

I looked at the photo and thought, "what a perfect dressy dress for work". The yellow is a nice color on you and I love the fitted waist. Sometimes a straight skirt looks like it's binding but this one is perfect. Very nice! You review was full of helpful details. Thanks for taking the time to teach.
