Cute, cute, cute!!! Your dress looks sooo nice on you! I love your fabric choice, and of course, your sewing skills have turned this into a very stylish garment. Your red reading glasses as wonderful, too!

I missed this review, but Dorothy mentioned it, so I looked it up. A fabulous dress, Barbara! I love it - your modifications were perfect. And it's so cute with your red glasses!

You have made a really adorable dress out of this pattern, and styled it really well too. I'll have to review my stash with this dyeing plan in mind!

What can I say that hasn't already been said! I love everything you did. It was brilliant to dye the fabric and the fabric turned out beautifully. I love the red accents. The decision to use the red invisible zipper is right on. Thank you for pointing out all of the fabulous details and for such a wonderful and thorough review. (Love your glasses.)

Beautiful! Very upscale as well as relaxed. Posh, even. :) Nice job on the colour and fabric selection, too! I'm impressed!

Beautiful. How clever to dye the white fabric. It looks great on you and I love the red glasses.

Barbara, this is a wonderful dress. You did a great job in the way you used the fabric. The dying came out great. I must say that brilliant minds think alike. I just finished the same dress using a Japanese cotton from Marcy also. Will post my review shortly. You set the bar - this is a great review.

This is truly a work of art! I, too, wouldn't have given this pattern a second look. Your fabric is fascinating and the color turned out gorgeous. Great job all around!

You have such a knack for style. This fabric, dyed, and this pattern are a perfect combo. The fabric has such a large design, it would be hard to find a pattern to compliment it as well as this. Thanks for a great and detailed review, including ways to alter the design for your fabric.

So pretty! Your version is much cuter than the pattern envelope.

How pretty on you -- especially with those red glasses!

Fabulous on you Barbara. Your addition of the invisible zip is cool, as well as dyeing the fabric to tone the red. I love your result!!

What a wonderful dress. I like your subtle changes -- that's why we sew, isn't it? This is a fun pattern.

Just adorable! I love your version so much more than the pattern envelope! I may have to make this up now after seeing yours!

What a darling dress! I wouldn't have looked twice at this pattern until I saw your dress. All of the details make it truly special. And as always, your work is perfection.

I have been contemplating this dress for summer. Your version is lovely.

Very pretty and love that you dyed the fabric to make it work for you.

What a gorgeous dress! I absolutely love all the detail too and the fabric is so perfect for this pattern. Amazing again!

Great detailed review. Love all the surprising details, the dying of your fabric and your sewing is perfect. This dress looks wonderful on you too.

Your version is so perfect, I love it, the colour, the fabric, the accessories. What a great idea to dye the white fabric, must remember that. This is my favourite dress ATM. Whilst it has a billow-ey shape I found it is surprisingly flattering and very comfortable to wear.

Beautiful and charming! I noticed this fabric at Marcy Tilton but was perplexed about how to put it to its best use - I think you used it in a very smart way.

Love the dress. Great review. Nice solution to dye the fabric, I am not a fan of white either

You did such a great job with this from the dye to that beautiful red accent color, the fit and's all perfect for this dress. It looks great on you and love your shoes and accessories...too perfect! = )

I have to have sleeves at my age but love this pattern.

Fabulous. Truly. I love this dress already, and yours is wonderful and looks great on you. Thanks for your detail about the zipper. Finding the right length separating zipper has been no easy task, so your solution is a good one.
