It's been too long since I've looked through reviews. I missed this great dress. I don't see anything falling on top or bottom just a chic young woman looking very sporty, especially on the scooter. Show those legs!

very cute dress! Looks wonderful on you, as well. May have to try this, especially 'cause i could use up a riri zipper doing it ;)

Cute dress, looks much better on a real person than I could have guessed from the Vogue photos and line drawings. You look like you're having fun!!

Great looking dress - love the shot on the bike. Lots of hard work but the result is well worth it

Is that scooter adorable or what? And do I see a pair of mismatched JRT ears in that leg shot? I do. The dress looks fabulous on you. In fact a perfect style for you all around. Not only does it fit your shape but certainly your personality too! Worth the work I'd say.

I love the special touches that you gave it with the contrast facings, and the great zipper. You look fantastic in it!

This dress is adorable. It looks great and you've got the attitude. Love all the shots, especially the motorcycle. I fell in love with this pattern also and now I can't wait to make the dress. Your review will be extremely helpful.

You did a great job on the dress, despite the fussiness, and it looks so good on you! Great review!

What a great looking dress. I'm not a fan of the exposed zipper, but the one you did really looks good. I like the multi-colored teeth.

Love this style on you! And what a super cool zipper!

I had skipped over this pattern, but yours is great, maybe I'll revisit it. I think the extra work is nice, as I understand the devil is in the details. That is what makes it look more refined. I love it.

It looks super on you. Is that new haircut? I love it.

Cute dress! It looks great on you!

Its terrific. That zip - I'm so envious you can buy something like that! I like your contrast lining details, pocket, and drop waist. The quilting is a bit lost in the photos but maybe close up will pay off for the extra work. The style and length really suits you, perhaps you could do a rehash in a different fabric changing a few details and the construction? It could work in a version with a three quarter sleeve too?

You do look sassy in this dress. I understand why this pattern seems overkill, but you look like your enjoying yourself:)

It is about time to do a remake of "Harley Davidson" starring Mary MareC! Beautiful work, and your photo album is a wonderful treat. Va-va-voom!

Gosh this is so much cuter than the pattern envelope suggests! Great job on the dress, and on the legs!

How cute are you in that dress! I love the motorcycle shot! It must be a great pattern cause it has me talking more about you than the dress (and shouldn't a great dress do that?)
