Looks great Erica - don't know why I passed this pattern over as it looks like it would be great for summer as well as later if the sleeves were added. Guess will have to buy - sigh!

I love the tab! I also love the shape on you. I'm fascinated by the zipper insertion since I don't really do a 'clean' one with lining. Excellent.

Perfect dress for you and those lovely long legs. Those shoes are TDF too! Great sewing workmanship on the details.

Wow. And to think, I passed on this pattern. You're making me rethink that. Great job and thanks for the information about your alterations. There are those of us who appreciate linings. A good detail. And thanks for the links.

That looks awesome! I have this pattern upstairs, and a perfect black/white cotton print (that will also need a lining so I know what you mean!). Great job and review!

Adorable dress, Erica. Several people have made this and it IS so much cuter than the picture on the envelope. I love your fabric choice. And the sassy photos on your blog are great!
