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.

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! = )

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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!!

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

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

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.

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!

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.

You look adorable and I bet its comfortable as well. I remember this fabric from the retreat!:). this dress is so fashionable and I never would have known. You have a great eye!

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

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.)

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!
