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!

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!

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!

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!

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

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 :)

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!

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!
