I love this and am very impressed with the fantastic job you did! As a 50 something I have also admired this pattern from afar but not anymore - I will have to have it!

Gorgeous dress. Lovely bodice on that. Thanks for the tutorial for the 'no gape' neckline. That makes a lot of sense.

Beautiful dress, I have seen a few other versions. Yours is gorgeous and age appropriate. Thank you for the V neck tutorial

Great LBD for all occasions and you look great in it! I like the texture of the fabric. I know, it's hard not to press when it's ingrained in our brains!

Lovely and I totally agree with you about the age thing and this dress. I have my bodice muslin cut and ready to sew this morning. Really appreciate the vee neck trick.

Fantastic dress, so flattering and chic. I have the Victoria blazer from By Hand that I am excited about but never considered the Anna dress because it seemed like it was for the young folks. Thanks for this review, it opened my eyes.

Fabulous! I too have been wondering if this dress would be appropriate for a more mature woman/figure, so thanks for posting. You've definitely inspired me to try it!

This is a lovely version of the Anna dress. It suits you beautifully and thanks for the helpful tutorial on the V neck.
