Wow - I wasn't really interested in this pattern until I saw your version, very cute and sassy. I'll have to try this out and heed the advice as well. Great job!

Perfect summer dress! You said the pattern runs small. What size do you normally make and did you simply add 1" width to the skirt or did you go up a size? The bodice part looks as if has sufficient ease or was that part small also? Thanks..I think I might like to try this dress out. I like the fact that the waist area does not appear to be gathered too much. Nice look so cute!
