    The dress is absolutely stunning and jersey is one of my favorite fabrics. It’s lightweight, it travels great with little or no ironing and it drapes wonderfully on almost all figure types. What more could we ask for ? !

    I already said that you often make things which I like a lot and I’m so glad to see them ready and in the best way! But now I must add that I even won’t try to make this dress although I like the pattern very much, because nobody could look better in it than you!!! Excellent pattern, excellent job and you are just a beauty!
