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!

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.
