Late to the party, but I have to chime in to say that your fabric placement is amazing. Way to work a border print!

Your dress is so BEAUTIFUL! I love how you used the border! Very smart to sew the front and back as one piece! I'll have to remember that.

Classic little dress beautifully made and fitted. Your use of the border print on the bodice was so smart. We really can use whatever part(s) of the fabric that works...

Fantastic job, it is super cute on you. Love the border print and seeing the facing picture. Love that type of facing and forgot all about them.

This is so pretty. I agree with the others; you used the border print perfectly.

Looks wonderful! I love your treatment of the border print; the seam you added in the center front bodice really allowed you to use the print to your advantage. Great job!
