Very lovely! This is also one of my all time favorite patterns. Butterick should consider reprinting it.

Just shows that if the fit is right even the most simple shape and style looks stunning. Beautiful dress

This is my all time favorite too, I have fabric set aside for it. Your newest version looks great in that beautiful cotton twill :)

Thanks everyone for your nice words. SewWil, it was your version that first drew me to this pattern. That fabric was stunning! Cissie and Beanchor, my new sewing room and I are still in the honeymoon period so let's see how it looks in a few months!

I love your dress and the print you chose! I agree with CissieW, your sewing area is immaculate! I had a moment of questioning my self-worth upon seeing it!

Beautiful dress, and gorgeous fabric!
SewWil said... (5/30/13 8:33 PM) Reply
CUTE!!!! I love the dress in that print. I have this pattern and made the top but now you have convinced me that I have to make the dress as well. Your dress looks very pretty on you.

Perfect summer dress! I love Lilly everything :)
cleverkitty said... (5/30/13 6:59 PM) Reply
This cute dress is in my line up this summer, last summer it was suppose be made but Fall moved in too fast. As soon as I saw you made it I said "oh good!!!!!" I know their is 17 more reviews but I was excited to see that you made it. Your intro on Lilly Pulitzer makes me want some fabric too, I don't think the Estee Lauder tote bags (gift with purchase) is enough Lilly in my life, thanks for modeling this great pattern ;)

Love, love, love the print. What a great little summer dress. :)
CissieW said... (5/30/13 11:48 AM) Reply
Great dress! I think I have this pattern so now will try to dig it out! BTW, your sewing area looks disgustingly neat and organized.

Haha, I'm pretty sure you do, CissieW! I think it was you who made me hunt it down on ebay last year! :)

I love my top from this pattern; your versions makes me think I should try the dress. Lovely.
