I always find it inspiring to see people take ideas from ready to wear and tweak patterns to create their own versions. Yours is excellent. Thanks for the info about solving the back neck gaposis.

awesome! you really made a great version of the Patagonia dress. I have this on my to-do list. i plan on using my fav- the Jalie twist top pattern to do the same! i am sure the supplex makes this very comfortable and practical to wear.

i like this twist pattern SO much better as a dress. thank you! and i love your idea of giving the back a seam to help with the shape. this pattern was sitting my 'loser' pile and now its been saved.
