I also quickly dismissed this pattern, but how fantastic it looks on you! Think I'll have to put in back in the "to do" pile.........! Great project, sewing retreat sounds divine!

I had dismissed this pattern as too "young" for my taste, but Wow! in that fabric it's quite elegant. Thanks for the review!

Your dress looks great. I agree I like the addition of the darts to eliminate gathers.

Fabulous dress - it's a casual style but you have made it look very elegant - you look lovely in it.

Like the fabric, like the design. Empire and peasant designs often come off like maternity wear, not so here. Thanks for the tip about darts in the back skirt. The dress looks lovely on you.
