Your dress looks so soft and feminine. Great job

Thank you for your comments!>ukdame, No, I didn't used my serger for binding the fabrics. (I think it is no problem to sew this dress with serger but I just didn't do it this time.)

Love this dress - the fabric makes it look so ultra femine and floaty - like others I think it looks more like a chiffon - the results are gorgeous

Really nice! I have this pattern and keep trying to think about what fabric to use. I love yours! I will definitely look for a more sheer knit than I've been considering. BEAUTIFUL!

This looks fabulous on you, and your fabric choice is beautiful. I agree with everyone else -- the fabric looks like chiffon. Thanks for sharing such a lovely creation. Now I want one!

Beautiful dress on you and perfect fabric. I am envious of your fabric choices in Japan. Personally I hate sewing knits myself. Did you use a serger for any part of it. I will have to check out your blog.

You are such a good fabric / pattern matchmaker! I would never have imagined this dress in this fabric, but now that I see it, I love it. It's so distinctive and seems perfect to me. I'm a fan of your work!

Thanks for all comments, you lovely ladies! As I can't send PM on PR site, pardon me for replying you here.>AuntieShel, I didn't line it. I made an under dress for it too. And, I use polyester filament threads for most of my jerseys. Common spun threads are not so good for stretch fabrics, IMO.>donna mel, I bought it at "Pachira" in Nippori town in Japan. Nippori is the most famous fabric town in Japan.

I can't believe that fabric is a looks like a sheer chiffon or something. SSOOOO cute! Where did you buy the fabric?

Totally cute !!! I really love the fabric.. and the construction looks amazing. Good job. I want it !

I saw this one on your blog. It came out so wonderful. The sheer fabric doesn't look like it has a 2-way stretch. It gives this pattern a whole new look. Great job!

Very pretty dress. Your fabric was such a nice choice. This pattern seems to work on everyone too....both the thin and thick gals.

OMG, Yoshimi, this dress is fabulous!!! Love the fabric you chose--did you line it? The fabric is so perfect, has interest with the dots, yet shows off the design of the dress!!! What is the type of thread you used?

Beautiful fabric, love the subtle polka dots. Very pretty dress.
