I'm working on this "easy" pattern right now. Yowza! Lots of steps, lots of details but I want the keyhole look and I hope it comes out as well as yours. I am doing it in red linen and lining it. Dreading the little pleats in the front....

Thank you ladies! To imsewcrazy, due to using a knit, there is enough "stretch" for the dress to pull over my head, otherwise, a woven would require a zipper. :-)

Love this dress! The fabric is beautiful! It looks great on you. Is the dress easy to get on and off without a zipper? The neckline does not seem to be that roomy.

Great dress! Love how you utilized the print with this style too.

As always a great looking outfit and I give you 100% ++ for staying through all these 49 steps but it sure did pay off, Very helpful review

Well, what a very pretty dress on you. I am amazed at the number of steps and details required for this pattern. You however, took them in stride and turned out a most lovely dress that looks fabulous on you!

Instructions with 49 steps are not an "easy" pattern rating! Goodness! Even with the construction issues, your perseverance paid off, and you ended up with a very pretty and figure flattering dress!

This may have been more work than you anticipated, but your dress is lovely and very flattering.

I love your dress and your great review. Your twist looks a lot better than the one in the illustration.

I love your fabric choice for this dress, and using a knit sounds perfect for this pattern.

Wonderful dress on you, I like the twist. I can totally see this is not an 'easy' project.

Pretty!

49 STEPS??? My gosh, that's not what I'd call "easy" either. This dress has so many wonderful details, though, your perseverance really paid off. I LOVE that twist at the front. You look SO pretty in this! :o)

yes I agree this was labor intensive thanks but I adore the way it turned out, those pleat marking on that knit HAD to be difficult Great choice on fabric love love houndstooth :)

Thanks for the review. Sounds like you had your share of issues, but it turned out great! Love the fabric and it fits you very well.

Wow, love the dress and loved reading through your review. Sounds like a lot of work even with a knit and yeah you wouldn't expect that so it had to be frustrating! What a cute dress, thanks for calling this pattern to my attention. = )

Great version of this. Good idea to use a knit. I really like the look of the houndstooth. This was about to be at the top of my queue but I know it will be time intensive...thanks for the great review!

Very nice design and the houndstooth makes it even more eye catching and unique!

ANother nice dressy dress. Yes, Vogue is a bit free with the Easy appellation. ;)
