Wow!!! This is PRETTY!! The pattern design is perfect for you body and the fabric is adorable. You look absolutely gorgeous in it. If you add ruby cardigan and red pumps as you said, you will elevate it even more!

Wow! Amazingly well done! I love the way you cut the pieces (the tree/stripes are such a great print) and the fit is just great.

(PS Glad I found you over here. I wanted to comment on your blog, but the whole Google+ thing they're doing now sketched me out when I read the fine print of creating an account.)

The cut and fit on this dress is unbelievable, you look to die for!  I'm loving the fabric choice, too, and hitting this rocks as hard as humanly possible.
