I love seeing this dress on a woman that's my size. Your dress looks great! I'm encouraged to make one of my own.

Great dress and so flattering! I like your modified collar and haven't been drawn to the pattern because of the original color. I love the silhouette, so I'm adding it to my wish list! Tanks for helping me see the possibilities!

The dress is beautiful; you look great in it! I like your collar size better than the larger one in the pattern. Your fabric is gorgeous, and I like your longer length.

And that is how it is done! Great fabric choice with that pattern. I WISH I could do that, you look fantastic in that. I also love the red accessories.

Beautiful dress! I see why you were drawn to that lovely fabric.

Re Becca, Yes when I altered the back neck , I added about 1/4" to the collar band, because the alteration added width to the back neck

I love what you did with that fabric. That pattern envelope picture looks so plain compared to your dress, you have a good eye for possibilities. I love the fit too. When you altered the back neck, did you have to change the collar to compensate? That sounds very interesting to me. I like your collar much better.
