Beautiful job! and truly in the spirit of the LBD with the removable buckle. Thanks for your great notes regarding changes and challenges. Question: where did you get the knit poly used for the lining and what kind of knit is it? Thanks and congrats!

What an amazing dress you've made. New Look needs to put you on the cover of its pattern. Wow!

Beautiful and versatile dress!

Extremely high end - TOL - with the material you used. You also chose a skirt length that was flattering for your height and figure which some the other reviewers did not do (the skirts were too short for their body type and did not look well on them). Compared to the other reviews I read for this pattern, if I didn't see your final version pix, I would definitely not want to sew the pattern. It just confirms that picking the right fabric can make or break a garment to look well or just look beginning Home Ec. Very good job. I can now consider making this dress.

Great first contest entry. In-depth review was very helpful. Excellent job.

Glad you finished your dress in time. It looks wonderful. I hadn't noticed this pattern before. It looks much nicer on you than the envelope. I didn't even know there was such a thing as wool ponte knit.

Great dress! I haven't noticed this pattern before but will keep an eye out for it now!

This is gorgeous on you! Super versatile dress and beautifully made...great work!

This is truly in the spirit of the LBD! T'ain't easy to get something to look good for cocktails and then with an orange sweater plus scarf. I might even like that shot the best. I love that you've already have fun out in your beautiful dress. You look terrific!

This LBD looks amazing on you. I love the pleats and how figure flattering it is. I wouldn't have even looked at this pattern until I saw your version, you rock in it!!!!
