One of he nicest - if not the nicest - summer dress I have seen in a long time. It's a real show stopper in the stripes!

I definitely don't have the figure for that, but enjoyed your blog post and the possibilities for this pattern. Looks fantastic and a cotton jersey knit would be so comfortable for summer.

A Sarah Hall of Fame entry. I love that you turned the stripes vertically for the bottom layer- so elongating! Did you use steam a seam and turn the neck and arm edges, too? The bindings gave me fits on this pattern and from the photo it looks as though you may have wisely eliminated them.

Awesome execution, and looks great on you! This style keeps coming to my attention - I saw a neoprene version in a Michael Kors store yesterday, and today I see your review! I'm due for fabric shopping with a friend soon, and I might just look for striped fabric...

What a great dress! I have this pattern but just haven't found the perfect fabric yet, I may have to make a close approximation to your dress, it is perfect

Good to see this dress on a healthy woman. I passed up this pattern when it first came out because it did not look good on the emaciated model.
