Awesome review! I just started this project in black linen last night. So far so good. I agree with you about the shoulder straps as I also prefer a little more coverage. I cut this out on 8/10 and started sewing on 8/11. I expect to finish tonight. Again, awesome review! Thanks!

great review, looks great. thanks for all the info. I have this pattern and keep thinking about it, but the center pleat puts me off - maybe I will eliminate it entirely.

You have done a great job with the fit and choice of fabric. Really nice. It is a pattern I might not do after a first glance at the pattern, but with your photo and review I am going to give it a try! Thank You!

Very pretty, and impressively tailored. You seem to be remarkably thorough and meticulous for a slapdash sewist!

cute dress and a wonderful silhouette on you. I like the way you always combine multiple photos into one screen. Great review.

Very cute dress! Your vintage ribbon and decorative stitching raise the dress to the next level.

Love your dress! It looks fantastic. The trim and running embroidery stitch are great touches. I was not inspired by the pattern until I saw your version. Now I think I must have it.
