Shame it didn't work out for you. The fabric is lovely and from the picture it looks really good.

I too think it looks very nice on you! Maybe you are too hard on yourself. :) Nice colors.

Thank you for your kind comments. I do like my garments better on the hanger than on me :)

I think you might like the dress better in a solid or smaller print that would show off the waist band and other design features.

I hope this one grows on you because the fit and fabric look great in the photo! Love your shoes and bag too.

I like this on you, and at the risk of sounding "bossy"...maybe consider this a very wearable muslin and sew another one, using everything you learned from this version. The whole ensemble is wonderful.

Marian - thank you, solids are a good idea. Marec - thank you - please don't think you are "bossy", I appreciate everything said. I don't have anyone here to sew with or help me, so continue to critique me please :)

Nice look! There are lots of sites to show you how to widen sleeves. It is a pity the pattern did not show you.
