Love the fabric! I think you're right; it's about the fabric choice for this one. I'm looking forward to making it. Thanks for your thoughtful review.

After your first beautiful version, I had to make one for myself. And now you have done it again. Just as beautiful. Does this mean I have to make it again?

This pattern has lingered in my stash for a while, so it's great to see what can be done with it. Your latest version is so chic, especially because of that gorgeous fabric.

You are right, the great fabric really makes this pattern and showcases the fabric well too! Looks great. Everyone needs a few "grab and go" pieces that will travel well, pull and outfit together and didn't take a lifetime to make!
