Your choice of print modernises this dress out of frump! Love the way you placed the border, esp. On the back. Love that you show benefit of removing excess gathering - my main concern. Thanks for details re armholes - I have no idea what I will do - my body has changed a bit since last time I sewed.

You mentioned in your review, blog, or bio that you are pear-shaped. I have pinned your garment to the Pearables Pinterest Board. Please let me know if you would like it removed. An explanation of the Pearables Pinterest Board may be found in the first post in the Pearables forum.

I love a border print, and it looks so good on you! Really glad you persevered with the pattern as it is so striking and looks great with your figure.

Very nice, and an excellent way to use a border print. The upside down pattern on the back looks like a design effect, as the others have said. Do not worry about it!

So true about the staystitching! I try to do it before I handle also! I really like your print dress! Great review!

What a pretty version of this dress! I agree with the commenter above: your placement of the print on the yoke looks like an intended design feature, not a fabric constraint.

olgarosita, this looks lovely! The yoke print is just right...very designery! and no, I can't see a problem with the collar!

You did the border perfectly! What a great look!

I am sooo stealing this idea of the border print. I love border prints and I am obsessed with shirtdresses so this is a total win for me! Great work! And both the collar and the colored belts are fantastic ideas!

The upside-down print in the yoke looks like a design detail: it mirrors the border print at the hem. So it's not a problem; it's an enhancement. Lovely dress!
