the close up of the armscye (who invented that word?) is worth everything - it fits the curve beautifully without the odd pooky thing that so many patterns add to the top of the side seam and it even does it in a fabric not known for helping curves. Helpful excellent review and terrific sewing.

What a great denim dress! Methinks denim is made for this kind of dress! Beautiful top stitching and love love your exposed zip, and that pretty bias binding, too! Such beautiful details! Great job!

Great job with this denim fabric and all of the topstitching. Love this style. I had not paid any attention to this pattern until seeing your version.

Love, love, love this dress! The topstitching, exposed zip, and binding are perfect, and it's a flattering silhouette to boot. I can't believe the fabric is that old and still in great shape! Thank you for the Dusty Springfield video. Oh how I used to love listening to her on the radio. Your review is excellent and so funny!

Great dress. I'm gonna have to add the pattern to my stash!

Just beautiful! The zipper, top stitching, and bias binding all go together to make this denim dress light years removed from dungarees! As I often say to my love, "Shhhh!" You go girl...gorgeous!!

Gorgeous! Now you got me thinking about the 5 yards of denim I have in my stash. I love your facings. Especially the zipper facing. Thanks for the review!!!!

I think, confronted with you in this dress, DH must have been so overwhelmed that he couldn't think straight. Dungarees indeed. This dress is stunning.

funny review and helpful. like the gold thread with the exposed brass zipper. Cute binding for just a bit of the feminine to go with denim.

Gosh -- I love that dress! You did a gorgeous job both inside and out. And I love that you did it with 'antique' fabric:)

Beautiful results! And blue denim- so versatile, can wear it all year. I am having stop stitching and bias binding ENVY here. Nice job, and thanks for sharing.

Love your review and your dress. What a cute design buried in this pattern. I love the idea of sharing our sewing playlists, too!

What a great dress! And your review is wonderful. I admire people that can write reviews that read like a good story! Well done on both!

Great job with all the top stitching! And the dress is perfect for the denim.

Absolutely beautiful! Impeccable workmanship. I'll bet that fabric was originally for pants, because of its width.
