Your dress looks great! You did a wonderful job with the border print fabric too. I bet this is a cool, comfy dress for summer!

I love your use of this fabric for this pattern. I don't have the issue but can imagine what the sleeve drafting was like. Well done on the hodgepodge of it all!

It's lovely! I like it very much as it is, but it would also be fun in other fabrics, such as fine prints.

I have always admired this style of dress. Your dress looks cool, interesting, and not too "girly". It's very nice.

Another great effort from MSB! I did not notice this dress in the magazine - another reason to look at it again! I love the print you used, your placement of the border at the tip of the collar is inspired.

I love the way you used the border print on this dress, I actually thought you had added matching sequins or embroidery to match the polka dot fabric.

I think we all agree: the collar placement was inspired! Very cute dress, perfect for the weather we are having right now. Hope your winter is not too unbearable!

Very cute on you and a good, detailed review! As for white linen -- linen is totally washable, so just be sure to shrink the bejeebus out of it before you cut. Hot water wash & hot dry. I might even do it twice if you plan to put the finished item in the dryer instead of line dry. Otherwise, it's just like white cotton -- hot water and a little Oxyclean keeps it nice. Line dry in the sun, if you can. The more you wash it, the softer it gets and the less it wrinkles.

You have done so nicely with so many Stylebook patterns, that's for sure! Now that I have seen them, I know that the math will just be way to much for me! I really enjoy your reviews! m:)
