So pretty! I'm with you on the fast binding - after a while it,s pretty easy to know how to lay it down, sort of feed thru the left hand.

Barbara V - Fabulous! I'm so happy to see this view made. I planning to make the same one using a green and out stripe. Great looking outfit.

Oh yes, I NEED a dress to wear to Lowe's. Ha, love it! The maxi craze has not tapped on my shoulder but I love your star dress, especially nice with the cardi.

Absolutely stellar, Barbara! Your maxi dress has style to the max! I adore the placement of the stripes and you look sensational as always. Also thank you for your very helpful tutorial for "fast binding" to finish the armholes and neckline.

Fabulous! Love the stripes and star. I'm amazed how the binding matches the fabric. Great job. You and your maxi look terrific.

So much fun to read your review and see your lovely dress. Great date outfit, whether dinner or Lowe's (where my DH and I have frequent "dates.")

Really awesome dress. I'm not normally a fan of stripes or maxis, but your combination is a real winner! I'm sure it would be fabulous at the grocery store too :)
