it's very beautiful. i agree it's not work appropriate (maybe if it was a few inches longer) The fit is fantastic!

Great dress, and it looks terrific on her, but if you want any work to get done by the guys, it stays home. They're wired to look, and look they will. Probably run into desks and drop things!

Wow, that's pretty!
And what I wouldn't do to have the figure for it......

That is one head-turner!


Beautiful work!!

Absolutely gorgeous and looks awesome on. Probably looks too good to wear to work. I think it's the length. I don't know if she has to sit down, kneel down or bend over at her job...but all of those things could create a problem in a work environment in that dress.

Cute!! If you like getting a lot of attention, from the guys, positive attention, from the women, watch out. I say don't wear it to work. For after work, it's great.

sexy dress
The only way she could weat that to work would be to wear a skirt over it that buttons up the front - then she could show off some of the bottom part of the dress. But she's gorgeous and it's gorgeous

!wow!
I'd say, take pity on the guys at work...and wear a sack on that sexy little figure!

Wonderful knitting! Wonderful color!

Gorgeous! What a lot of work and very well done!

Work, hmmmmm If there are guys there they will be and the women may be doing this and I am doing this because I haven't been able to wear a dress like that for 25 years!

But if she can get away with it...go for it, you are only young once!
