This is a great little dress. I love the contrast stitching and it suits your daughter's style. Looks great!

i knew, knew your daughter would want this!! love how you "trick" her into your design ideas by telling her which version is "cooler"!! not that I could ever wear it but it's so perfect for 20 and under!!

Really nice! I like the running stitch detail. Thanks for the info about the sizing, neckline and cutout.

Go for it "Persevering!" I know women your age who could pull it off -- especially for the beach, resort, etc. Your daughter is a great model for your creations, LindsayT. Another winner!

Thanks for the warning on the difference between pattern and photo. I was thinking about making this and just making it a bit longer - I don't have 20-something thighs and it would look a little silly on me, but your daughter looks fabulous.

Thanks for your review and I regularly read your blog. This is so adorable! And I want to make it too. Never mind I've never sewn a knit, haven't been sewing for quite a while (it is going to be soon though - I've promised to teach a young woman how to read a sewing pattern today - so before she arrives, I'll have my sewing area, stash, etc. finally organized) and I'm 56 years old (I bike, swim, walk and eat healthy 95% of the time & it shows). What do you (and other readers) honestly think?

It's darling! Thanks for the heads-up on the hole size.

Great dress! The hand stitching was a fantastic idea to add interest.

Love the idea of this as a beach cover-up. Thanks for the tips on the sizing!
