It's just SO CUTE. I ordered the pattern yesterday and I wasn't sure anymore, but your dress convinced me! It's going on top of my sewing list for this summer!!

To sew2little . . . no, bra strap does not show. This is a fantastic little dress for sitting around in the hot weather. To bconky, the front is somewhere between a crew neck and a boat neck and I think it's perfectly in keeping with the style. Beware of large bust with this pattern. If you are full-busted, you may want to lengthen the yoke because the lower edge hits just at bust bottom and has a narrow elastic to keep it in shape. I think this might look odd if it were higher than under-bust.

Great little dress! Does your bra band show in the back?

I like your version much better than the one in the pattern photo. Lovely back!

Love that back, do you like the front?

Wish the photo link would enlarge. Looks nice in the small photo though.
