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.

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, 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!
