Hi cocosloft, I have this pattern two and never thought to make it up in a woven. You did a fab job! Thanks for the great tips and insight.

I'd been wondering how this would work as a maxi/midi dress. Your review (and blog) were VERY helpful. Thanks!

All of you are so wonderful, I have apologized to my dress for any doubts I may have had...thank you!

How did you get the shoes to match? The dress is absolutely Escadaesque. The combination of fabrics came off perfectly. I am most impressed

Coco you may have been on the fence with this one, but as usual, you knocked this one out of the park!!! I would love to take this off your hands! Gorgeous!

I really love the long casual dresses you make. This one included! Thanks for the review.

Very helpful review - thank you!!! I love your dress - your choice of fabric seems perfect for the style - both the coordinating prints and the woven cotton. I especially like the length - it is much more flattering.

Very charming version of this dress! You have a wonderful "eye" for fabric selection. I especially appreciate your detailed instructions regarding the shirring section of this dress. Thanks!

This pattern is winging its way to me, and I'll definitely refer to your very helpful review when I'm ready to sew it :) Love your print fabrics, and that you were so successful at doing it in a woven. Great job!

Just beautiful! Love the Matisse influence in your fabric.

Thank you all, such nice compliments. I want to lend you my dress or have you over for lemonade or both!

Coco, I went to your blog and completely enjoyed it! Your take on the dress is wonderful and I loved and appreciated your technical construction upgrades to it. Thanks for posting.

Thanks for doing this review. I, too, much prefer cotton and wondered just how well it would perform in this pattern. Your dress is absolutely something to study. I like your take on it. Thanks for the pointers, too.

Lovely! The way you've worked your inspirations into the finished dress is clever, and you've made the dress look nicer and more appealing than the envelope illustration.

Looks like a perfect humid summer dress. I love the fabric, I love the dress.

Looks great, what a fun dress to wear. Enjoyed your blog!

Your version of this dress is my absolute favorite! The use of two coordinating prints really makes the dress. I like your version enough to want one for myself, and I'm not normally one to make the more loosely fitted garments. Thanks for your review!
