A yummy pattern and I love your material choices too. It's one of those classic, flattering styles

Omg, I own a VERY similar store-bought dress ($40), but it's polyester and have always wanted a more casual version (because it is truly flattering), I am noting the pattern to try in cotton!

It's funny you say that, because I had a similar experience but kind of in the opposite direction. I was looking for a New Year's Eve dress three years ago and found this absolutely gorgeous red twist-front dress at Nordstrom, but it was being sold for $350+ and I couldn't buy it. This was before I learned to sew.

I had been on this hunt for a dress just like it for YEARS when I learned to sew, and when I happened across that pattern, I literally squealed out loud. My boyfriend thought I had lost my mind. I made my red one first (of course), and it was exactly how I wanted it to be after fitting.

Funny how that happens, huh? Smiley

That dress is smokin - I may have to try it when I lose a few pounds.   Roll Eyes But it looks awesome on you!

There's a sleeved version:

And you don't have to loose weight with either dress -- it's curve friendly!

Wow!  As a your sister in voluptuosity (is that a word?) I think I'll run and snatch up this pattern.  Rarely do I find a pattern with such a beautiful and flattering design.  Thanks for posting and job well done!
