I really like the dress! It looks very nice on you and I have to agree, the fabric is beautiful!

It's beautiful. Maybe you just didn't like the print, after all. That happens. Make it again, in a different fabric. You did a good job fitting!

This dress really does look great on you. I agree with Baba Yaga on accessorizing this dress. You be surprised at much of a difference a cute cardigan can make.

Baba Yaga, thank you for that blog idea. I have not read that one, I'll be sure to check it out. And I have already thought that it would look good with a denim jacket for cooler weather.

Love the dress! When I saw your picture, the first thing I thought was how nice it looked on you.

You know what? I think you look great in that dress. One item isn't a wardrobe; you might let yourself think about different ways of accessorizing the dress. Maybe a cropped cardi or a shawl, or just an open shirt? Do you know the Communing With Fabric blog? It's a great source for thoughtful writing about sewing for the FBA figure. I think you'd enjoy her attitude and skill.

Thank you...the more I look at it, the more I like it. I think I need to get over my body image issues first :)

Too bad it didn't work for you. It looks really pretty.
