Gorgeous dress, it looks amazing on you! I really like the print you used, too. Loud, yes, but super fun and funky! You did a great job on the fit, too. :)

Beautiful dress! I made this one a few years ago, but really should revisit it! Definitely going to check out the hem instructions!

Thanks so much everyone for the super nice comments! I'm really happy with it, and I do hope to make more eventually! I'm glad lots of others are going to make up this pattern as well, it really seems flattering on many figures.

Oh, spectacular. I love it. Just the perfect fabric for this pattern, too.

I know almost 2 dozen people have already told you this, but your dress looks fantastic! I think the print is great and didn't notice any circles out of place on the back. I think you should make a lot more of these, it is that great.

So very cute! I really like this and haven't noticed this pattern (yes, horrors, I know!). I think I will add it to my ever growing stash as I love knits!

You should send pics to Palmer/Pletsch - I'll bet they'd put this in their e-newsletter! Beautiful. I have the pattern, wonder if it would look better in a pinky-coral or geometric shades-of-bluegreen?

Your dress is gorgeous -- and your pattern placement is perfect. I have this pattern in my stash and picked up the perfect fabric in Chicago ... now I just have to find the time the make it. You did a wonderful job and the colour is stunning on you.

Love the wild print on you - gorgeous! And don't worry about pattern placement on the back, it looks just fine. Thanks for a helpful review.
