Beautiful outfit and straight out of the envelope to boot. Great fabric, too.

Hard to imagine that beautiful outfit came from the envelope. Maybe a self-lined bodice would work better? Then no facing or binding would be necessary.

I love ;your outfit, I am working on the pants now. You did a great job and thank you for all the tip about the waistband pieces. I will double check my pieces before I cut.

What a nice outfit. Love the print on your fabric. I agree that your version looks nicer than what the pattern picture shows.

Very cute and yes, much better than the envelope picture! That binding method is actually nicer than facings but I'd recommend doing it with your own bias strips instead of purchased bias tape. That way you can make the bias strip wider, which makes it easier to attach and work with. If you have enough fashion fabric, you can cut the bias from that and it gives a really clean and unobtrusive finish. :-)

If your outfit was on the pattern envelope I'd buy it. It's really cute.

Fabric and style are perfect. Lovely outfit.

Hi Bunz. The armholes and neckline were finished with bias tape that was ironed open then ironed folded down the middle, then sewn to the top by lining up raw edges and then folding over. I guess it was better than your standard facing, and it did come out okay, but it was a pain with this particular fabric, which wanted to slip and slide out of place and bunch itself up like an unruly child. I just took my time and used umpty-billion pins. It wasn't too bad, really. I was just whining.

Very pretty. What was it about the armholes/neckline that you didn't like?

Wow - Your version looks so much better than what is on the pattern envelope. Congratulations. What a wardrobe builder this will be for you.
