I love the way you combined the different fabrics (but I'm sad that I would never be clever enough to come up with a working combination like that).

Great combination of fabrics! What a wonderful idea!! I picked this pattern up yesterday. Wished I read all the reviews first. Didn't know it needed some much alterations. I'm glad yours turned out wonderful and looks beautiful!! Still I think I'll give it a try. Thanks for the great review!

Very cute! I have this pattern in my stash and may have to think about color blocking it (with scraps of sari fabric of course)!

Combining the fabrics is really clever, and they work well together.

In spite of the poorly drafted pattern, you really made it work for you. I think it is extremely flattering and I love the 3 fabrics together.
