Oh this is seriously cute! The deep v neck makes a great line and I love the color. It would look great in prints or solid. Wow, so many options to consider. Looks terrific on you.

Gee, I managed to leave a double post AND get cut off before I was done. At any rate, this COLOR is one of my ALL-TIME FAVORITES, and hard to find (in my experience). This whole outfit looks GREAT. I'd make another one JUST LIKE THIS ONE.

Very pretty, and a nice waist accent. With those dolman sleeves can you raise your arms without the showing off midriff? I'm a teacher and shied from this pattern because I write on the board in front of a crowd! Please advise :)

Your top looks lovely. I am considering this one too.

Thanks everyone! I didn't say in the review, but I DO love this fabric, especially the color. If you read my blog you might remember this was a $20 Saturday purchase last month...for $1.50 Bwahahaha! Annette, you crack me up. Katherine...I'd lengthen the lower bodice pieces. Mine was allover too big, so it's going to be fine, but when I resize the bodice, I'll be lengthening the lower pieces to compensate for that very thing!

I've seen this done up before, but yours is the first time I've thought about actually making the pattern for me. It looks wonderful on you!
