Very nice! I have this pattern and I've been hemming and hawing for all the reasons you describe--no photo. I'm so glad to see yours. It turned out really well. I found your comment about sizing to be pretty much the way it is for the big 4 pattern companies. I measure a 12 or 14 according to their body measurements. I usually make an 8 or 10. There is no way a strapless dress should have 4 inches of ease yet some patterns have been made that way when looking at their body measurements! I'll have to make this one up!

Wow, I'm with you! I think I've been skipping over that pattern because of the picture, but I just love yours! I may have to add that to my list now ;) Your fabric is great for it too!

You always make the cutest dresses! My only complaint is that you should model them :D

Very pretty dress and pattern! You're right, it is easier to tell what is going on in the line drawing.
