Thank you for this review. (You commented on a similar style mock wrap that I reviewed recently, so I had to check yours out.) You look fabulous. The color is a good choice and I see that you scrapped the bias tape altogether. Hah! I wish I had come across your review before I labored with my bias tape.

Great dress!! I agree with the others - the color looks fantastic on you! I need to pick up the pattern now.

A nice style for you. Great job on the fitting. I like the focus of the gentle curve of the drape versus a cinched waist. However, since you do have a nice waist shape, I can understand your wanting a closer fit. I found the detailed photos in your album very helpful. Do you like sewing and wearing the raglan sleeves?

Persimmon IS your color! I think the dress is flattering but I know what you mean about the definition in front. It might only look that way to the wearer. I wonder why I don't own this pattern.

Thank you all for the many compliments! I was mentally resisting this color because of YEARS of "bridesmaids dress color" prejudice but I'm in love with this shade now. It makes me look as though I have a tan (I don't!) and everyone at work was very complimentary.

Cute cute cute! Do we have the same pattern inventory? I'll need to look at the dress on this pattern-I love the top.

What a cute dress! Thanks for the great review. I love this pattern. One day I will make it.

Wow, do you look fantastic in this color! I must get to this pattern. I like waist definition, too, though, so I'll have to think about what to do about that.
