I'm just getting around to making this pattern and lo and behold...I have this same fabric! I love what you did here. Nice choice for this border print! Thanks for reviewing this pattern. It looks wonderful on you. :)

Wow! This is such a great dress! I love your use of a large border print. The exposed bias binding is such a nice touch, and the fit looks great (good call removing the extra gathers). Stunning dress

OK, now I want a maxi dress. Your use of the paisley border print makes this dress.

Thank you, thank you everyone for the lovely comments! sewpelican, I think absolutely, one could add sleeves. Just look for a pattern with a sleeve style that you like; then incorporate the sleeve opening onto this pattern and you're all set to add sleeves.

Very Impressed with the conversion to a dress, fabric suits the style so well.Congratulations on a beautiful result. Would it be possible to add sleeves do you think? I have 2 gorgeous border prints but sleeveless is not so good on me these days.

Your garments always look better than the ones on the pattern envelope. Bravo again, and the color is great on you, too.

Lovely! wouldn't have occurred to me to lengthen the pattern. That's what is so good about PR, new ideas all the time.

You look fabulous and great job on matching the print. I have never thought of border prints for myself, but after seeing this creation I need to go shopping! :-)

Fabulous! Turning the top into a dress is a great idea, and it works well in that fabric. I love paisley, too.

Thank you for the wonderful comments!!! liliv, the print is called paisley design which I am also fond of. Certainly no lack of it on this fabric!

I love the dress as a maxi. The print is very interesting. Looks like just the perfect dress for summer.

A great decision to turn this into a maxi! The print is perfect and I love the exposed neck facing.

It looks beautiful on you. Such a great fabric for a maxi dress. You did such a great job with the border print.
TJSEWS said... (7/13/13 4:10 PM) Reply
I absolutely love it! The fabric is fun and beautiful. I like the idea of adding a self-fabric sash - it looks more polished that way. You look gorgeous!

Great match of pattern to fabric, very classic but on trend! I really like this, you look fantastic.

This is so pretty and I love the pattern placement. I sent on this pattern, and now see its possibilities. Very wonderful!

Great dress! I love the fabric and the longer length.

Absolutely gorgeous - I don't think you have ever reviewed anything that I haven't just loved - and this is sure one of them. So elegant and just right for summer
vaness said... (7/13/13 2:48 PM) Reply
Lovely! Great fabric choice. I like how the paisleys mirror each other on the bodice back, and, of coarsen the border at the bottom.

Looks gorgeous. I like seeing the versatility in patterns.
