Love this, so pretty and flattering!! Your reviews are always so informative and to the point; I love reading them. And of course, the clothes are superb.

My Barb is wearing a dress!! How adorable are you?? I love it and I'm so glad this pattern worked for you because it did not for me...fabric is awesome!

Also noticed the "change" to sewing and modeling a dress! Looks really classy and professional with a very complimentary fit. You topped that off by creating comfortable work clothing! Good going!

Outstanding dress and you look great in it. I'll definitely borrow your waistband elastic method next time.

Barb!! That dress turned out awesome and looks terrific on you...Plus what a bonus no gap on the neckline! I have this pattern also and now am excited to make it because of all the great stuff you liked about it. I love your fabric too. I'm sure it is so comfy to wear. I also like the pocket idea on this and see you did those too. Did i say I liked this pattern :) Thanks for another great review!

Really nice dress perfect for work and nice and warm! Love the details on this pattern, I can see you making one for each season. So glad it was a success :)

How do you measure your elastic for sewing on the SA that way, instead of a tunnel method?

sew2little said...
Oh, I guess I need to buy this pattern. Your dress looks great!

Oh, great idea on dyeing the background of a fabric!

Love both versions, but your lovely Paris Green is fabulous!

Renata said...
Oh so nice. Love the Paris Green, and so flattering.

Sue Parrott said...
Oh, I love this! How does the dye behave when washing? I have some fabric I dyed using the Dharma dye like you did and I haven't cut into it yet or washed...I guess I am a big chicken!

Love your dress and the dye job. I've only dyed once and am ready to try again. The dress is perfect for spring and fits you beautifully!
5/25/13 10:09 PM
Barbara V said...
A jaw dropping "Wow" on your dyeing the fabric to the beautiful Paris Green which I think looks fabulous with your coloring. Yes, keep going, make more of these dresses, which are so flattering on you. Super job!

Mimi O said...
Very nice. I do like the Paris Green color and I'm not one for greens. The lengthening of the belt was a nice touch as well!

This is such a great dress on you. Nice job on the fabric dye.
