Glad for your review. I remember looking at the style a couple years ago and the gussets scared me off. Your creation looks super!

That is an adorable dress! And thank you for the reminder that we don't need to rely on the pattern for advice on how to do something as we have so much help available on the internet. lucky us. Beautiful creation and the colour is just glorious on you,

Thanks ChristmasHills! I had found a very helpful tutorial when I decided to try the gussets but I don't know if it is ok to add the link.

Thank you Cheryl in Chicago! This issue is really a treasure, it has so many pretty and timeless patterns. The funny thing is that when I bought it back in 2007, I didn't like many of these gorgeous dresses because I beleived that they were old fashioned. I bought the issue only for one dress that was then on trend in my country. I never made this dress:))

I love this dress on you -red is definetly your color! I like the the belt with the bow detail you added - a very feminine touch.
