Wow! What a cute set! I love the polka dot trim! I bought this pattern, then got uninspired about it, and now your review has gotten me interested in it again. Thank you!

You did a beautiful job on this! The polka dots are fun and elegant, too.

Thank you everyone. Jolet - thanks for your very kind comment about my seams! I didn't use the serger at all on these garments, just the sewing machine. Two rows of topstitching done individually. I was going to use a twin needle, but I didn't have the energy to get it out of the packet, so didn't! I'm sure if you scrutinized the whole garment you'd find some wonky bits.

Lovely - really lovely - was out shopping yesterday and believe it's Liz Clairborne who has brought this out in many colors to go with long sun dresses or whatever - looked at the price but don't remember - you are right in style and with that in mind I must get this pattern

You results are beautiful and very inspiring. Makes me wish I had the pattern right now to work on - guess I will have to add it to my wish list.

What a great result!! Your seams are beautiful when you look at the detail pictures. How did you do this, with your serger?

Beautiful twin set! I love the color and it really looks nice with the black skirt. I'm usually not one for twin sets, but I really need to get this one. Thanks for the review.

That is a very cute outfit. Yours should be on the pattern envelope.
