I love this! It reminds me of I Love Lucy dresses! What a fun and functional dress that is flattering and feminine. Great fabric matching for the style of pattern. I am going on an Etsy hunt for this pattern!

Thanks for noting how you made some changes. I like the diagonal print pockets.

Love those pockets! I think buttons would be really cute, but also maybe interfacing would help, too.

You are so channeling the 1940's! Charming combination of pattern, fabric and trim.

Such a cute housedress, and the fabric is a perfect match for this pattern.

I love this housedress -- the print is great and the style really flatters you. Great job!

That is one cute housedress! To be honest with you I am kind of sorry they went out of style - they seem so practical and certainly prettier that jeans and a tee shirt! I remember my mother and grandmother having a collection of them and they always looked lovely at home. I never saw women in the grocery store wearing them, though! You did a beautiful job choosing fabric that suited your pattern and I love the pockets!
