This looks great on you - thanks so much for the links and details on adding sleeves. I can't wait to make one for myself.

Debbie you look fabulous! Love the dress on you but even more than that you are an inspiration, you continue to lose weight despite all the stresses in your life. Keep it up it shows, your outfits have always looked great and now they look even better!

Fabulous work, Debbie!Your alteration process as shown was fascinating..the more I see these things done, the more I understand. I am going to add sleeves ala' Debbie as I like a bit of coverage. Your fabric is very attractive and this is a dress made for you! I like it belted, too! You are looking very happy and committed to your diet,you look great! Thanks for such a detailed review.

Wonderful outfit! The shrug and dress look wonderful on you. The addition of the sleeves on the dress turned out great.

Debbie, You look great! Love the print and the styling with belt and shrug. Most of all, thanks for showing your sleeve addition. My pattern's altered and ready to go. All it needs is that sleeve. Perfect!
