Thanks for a really informative post. I'm a little shorter than you and love pockets so both are relevant to me and I will come back to it when I get the pattern. Can't wait for summer!

I like the grey fabric you chose to make the dress out of a lot. Your picture mimicking the model in the window made me laugh. :)

The dress looks great on you. Thank you for the helpful advice in your review. I'm about to start this project & will implement the neckline & lower skirt length adjustments, which I'll definitely need for my 5'3" body.

Love the dress. Thanks for the info on your blog. The dress is on my sewing table but I will add me some pockets.

Love this on you. Thank goodness the sides don't stick out like that permanently. :) It is flattering ...very flatttering style. Who knew from the pose on the pattern. Your necklace is terrific! Ditto..."A dress to be joyful in" another wrote. I think I might just have to get this for a summer dress!

magoe if you go to Don's blog, click on his web site - his jewelry is available in his Etsy store. I just looked, and he has very little available right now, so I guess you need to be patient....

The dress is wonderful. Love your sense of humor and the necklace is great also. I didn't see any jewelry on the web site you listed. Does he have another one for jewelry? Thanks

Love the dress and the pose! The dress makes your waist look teeny tiny (or maybe it really is and this just shows it off)! Looks great on you.

Wonderful dress! Vogue did a great disservice to this pattern, IMHO, when they chose such an artsy photo to "sell" it. Although I can appreciate "the pose" I appreciate even more your photos showing what it looks like on a real person standing up! It's actually very wearable and probably less complicated than I originally thought. So now to find suitable fabric and ,at 4 - 5 yards, affordable. I, too, am short and never gave this dress a second look but you have shown me the way!

Great looking dress! Love your picture.

Thank you for the fun comments everyone! Sewbehind after climbing up on the window ledge in those shoes believe me I had a serious face! ;D. Sewiing Sue it's quite comfy - not too heavy to wear at all (at least not in a chilly winter!)

It looks wonderful but is it heavy to wear? Great blog entry, too.

I love both your pose and the dress. Well done! Your pose reminds me of photos I've seen of the modern dancer Martha Graham.

Beautiful. And I just giggled at the picture!

By George, I think you've got it! Expression and all! Beautiful dress. I don't know how you kept a straight face.

Stunning and elegant, but the pockets got me. Gotta have it.

Love this and the idea of one for summer out of linen.

You rock! I have the pattern but it's not out of the envelope yet - maybe for (my) summertime
