Beautiful dress in a stunning color. Glad to here it worked out cause I'm waiting for this pattern in the mail.

Ooh, I love that dress. And the color is fantastic. Do lilacs some in that deep a purple? I used to have violets in my CO yard that color, but the lilacs were white or pale purple.

Great dress! I just searched this pattern to see if there were reviews. Thanks for a quick review and really pretty dress!

Nice dress barb-your version is so much prettier than the envelope art.

Really nice. Was looking at this pattern today and wasn't sure - I may now add it to the stash and hope my effort looks as nice as yours

Wonderful job on this as the fit is just excellent. I seem to be in the minority in that I bought this pattern a couple weeks ago, so I'm very anxious to try this after seeing how great yours turned out. Great review as always. = )

Very flattering style, simple but so effective with the pretty drape, the flared skirt and the pretty color. It is gorgeous on you!

Ohh I've been wondering about this pattern too - your version looks great!

As others have commented, I didn't give this dress pattern serious consideration until I read your review. Thanks for mentioning your use of a knit vs a woven and your subsequent changes. I like the simple, sleek look. Gathers around the waist are not flattering on me..this dress will be.

I never gave this pattern a second look. Yours should be on the pattern envelope. Great looking dress!

I agree. I think your dress is a lot more flattering than the one on the pattern cover. Nice job!

Thank you so much for this review! I have been sleeping with this pattern all week and it has now officially made it out of triage into "Great Summer Sewing Marathon of 2013" picks. And you made it in my favorite color, too!

Beautiful color! Yours is so much prettier than the envelope...I passed right by it as a "meh" but yours is great.

How cute you are in this! Nicely done!

Love your dress. The fit looks wonderful.

Really great looking dress and helpful info on using a knit vs. a bias cut woven. I passed right by this when ordering during the Vogue sale and wish I hadn't!
