I'd have never given this pattern a second look until I saw your version. I've been looking for the 'perfect knit dress' pattern for a gorgeous ITY I have and I think this might be it! Thanks for the review!

Thanks for all the compliments! Karine, I'll look for that issue. I think I'd like it with a dolman sleeve.

Wow! Everything about this dress works for you. What a great deal on the fabric too. It's definitely a winner!

Very nice! Your dress looks wonderful on you. I noticed this pattern was featured in the new Threads, showing it with sleeves.

Beautiful dress! You have made me need to add this pattern to my inventory. Love your fabric.

Actually, I didn't raise the neckline. It's perfect most of the time but it gaps slightly when I sit down. It could be that I might size down a bit on top. I just found another Vogue pattern I might be able to Frankenpattern for a nice dolman sleeve: Vogue 8682.

Gorgeous! I think I have to give this one a try. I'm envious of your access to such great prints, that you can actually touch before you buy. I think ArtAttack is right -- the pattern would be easy to modify for a sleeve. Did you have to raise the neckline on this at all, or is it high enough for good coverage as drafted? (Many of these crossover styles are drafted too low, even for those of us who aren't busty.)

Beautiful dress. It seems everyone that makes it has good results. I made it and love it!

This is adorable! I have vascillated on whether to try this pattern and you are making the decision for me. Easy to add sleeves. I did it to V1250 which has a similar sleeve cap. Check out my blog at Maybe it will help you! Great dress!!

I have passed up this pattern several times because the lower half looks shapeless but on you I see it is so flattering! You look great in this and love the print.

Turquoise, orange and the colours! Great dress to show off this beautiful fabric.
