Beautiful dress, and pretty fabric choice. Would one need a strapless bra with this? I can't see where you would hide a strap in there...

You have a very pretty dress. I really like this style, more so when made up than in the sketch.

Pittysmom: You can get away with wearing a bra with thin straps. I am going to try this by pinning the sleevelettes with teeny tiny saftey pins. If this doesn't work, well I guess I'll wear a strapless bra.

Really very cute. Great job on your first dress. I have this pattern and I'm just going to have to get it out and make it up. Thanks for reviewing it.

I love this dress - it is SO cute! I'm not usually a 'dress' person but this seems perfect for the summer. Love it!

Hee hee hee... your wedding story made me laugh. I showed it to my boyfriend, and he agrees that it 'frames the girls' very well. He thinks the spaghetti strap version might draw less attention. Just for a man's POV...

Your dress is cute, I can see why you got a little more attention with that neck line. :)) Just a little hint to get rid of the saftety pins. Use either a crocheted or sergered chain of thread or thin ribbon(hem the ends) a little longer than the width of your bra strap. sew one end to the shoulder seam so it can cross over your bra strap horizontally. On the unattached end sew the "socket" part of a small snap and sew it's mathing "ball" so that it enables you to controll the cap of your sleeve and the bra stap without monkeying with a saftey pin. You may need another set of bra strap guides on the back side of your shoulders too. This is a great trick for sleeveless tops too.

I've ogled your version of this dress each time I've seen it come up on the side "rotisserie". Can't believe I've never commented before. It's really lovely! You've inspired me...
