this is in my stash waiting to be made, so thank you for the review. I will be referring back to it in the future. Your dress looks lovely, and congrats on trying plaid matching. I hope I wont find it too daunting when I try!

This is so pretty! Thanks for clarifying about the sleeve caps - validation that it wasn't me, it was the instructions is great!

Nice work on matching the plaids, especially for a first time. Pretty dress and you also got a nice fit.

Excellent review, cute pups, and a lesson in perseverance...Mr. Gunn would be proud. I saw this dress (nearly exactly) on a couture site, Kate Spade I think, it was in silk...over $400...and yours fits better!

Hey I'm trying to make this dress at the moment, and I'm still at a loss with the sleeves. Could you possibly step me through it???
