This dress looks great, Ann! I wish I had seen your review before making mine! LOL

I just bought this pattern and am excited to see your review! Lots of good tips. I am somewhat of a beginner, so a little nervous to put this together. Your pointers on marking all the dots and notches I am sure will come in very handy. Unlike you, however, I am actually going to have to lengthen it! Haha! Looks great on you!!

Lovely dress, and particularly like the fabric. I didn't think I could pull off a dress like this but after reading your review, and seeming how great this dress looks, I've added it to my buy list.

Hi, I have missed you and the inspiring way you present your sewings. Welcome back! I also bought this pattern and am very happy to find already two reviews of it. A great dress.

Welcome back! Was so excited to see a review by you when I logged into PR! And love this dress - I just bought this pattern and am now on the hunt for the perfect knit fabric.

Great dress! you cant tell the fabric is sideways. Before I read that in the review, my thought was how nicely you placed the fabric. Congrats on your move, I know that is a lot of work, and now it is behind you. Good luck in your new home. And what fun meeting fellow sewists from PR.

Love your dress. I cut this pattern out of Ponte, but mine was too heavy. I'm looking for something lighter.

Missed you and glad to see you back -you have had quite the year. Your styling always encourages me to try harder. Your dress is lovely and looks wonderful on you and yes indeed I would love that view so much I might not do any sewing!

Ann - it is so good to read a review by you again -- and on a pattern I just purchased and am dying to try. It looks great on you. Fabulous, as always. Welcome back.

Ann, great dress! The 2 reviews for this have encouraged me to move this up the 'to sew' list.

I too welcome you back; I wondered where you had been! Your first posted project from your fabulous new sewing room shows that your hiatus hasn't hampered your style! Great dress!
