This dress is super cute! Love the material you choose and the sleeves. I'm hoping the pattern is still out there.

You look so wonderful in this dress! Thank you so much for your fantastic and detailed reviews. As a beginning sewer, I find them truly invaluable.

Wow, what a fantastic dress. The length is perfect. I think we're all jealous of your fabric too! :)

Wow! You go girl! This is totally hot!

Aww, thanks Claire! B5247 is pretty cute with the cowl and they both have the same basic shape so I think you'll be doing great whichever you choose!

Oh my goodness, that's a fabulous dress ! I've noticed lately I really enjoy everything you're making. If I ever get off my butt and get to sewing, I may copy your closet LOL :-) Right now, I've got a stripey ponte that I really, really want to use and only had 2 patterns to decide from (this one and Butterick 5247). So here I am trying to make a decision and this review jumped up. With your detail, measurements, full hem pics and adjustments, it is done - this is next on my table. Thanks !!!!

Love your dress! I just made this up for the second time and agree with you -- a super simple pattern with great results.

THAT is so cute! You look great in this - it could be worn in so many instances! Office, church, party in the evening, out shopping - well, how handy! Love the fabric is great - looks like sweater knit in the pictures! :)

I love the stripe fabric for this dress!

It's all been said already. You have an eye for what looks good on you the wearer and for picking the right fabric for a pattern. Your reviews are also fun to read (important!) and packed full of useful info.

Thank you everyone for the kind words! I have been on a crazy kick the past few weeks. I'll take it! I hemmed and hawed over the stripe placement, specifically the band of white over my belly area. But I like it. I think it works :)

Cute dress! I had been looking for a pattern for a dress exactly like this! I agree with the shorter length too.

Cute dress! You are on a roll with the projects, I need some kind of motivation to sew up all of the ideas in my head.
