Fantastic choice of style and pattern for such an interesting print, and it looks awesome on you! Thanks for detailing your changes, especially ways to squeeze the pattern onto limited fabric.

Love the print. At first I thought it was a wrap front dress and had to go back and look at it again after seeing the pattern envelope. The lines matched very well.

Great use of a tough print. Very nice result.

Classy! I was expecting a much more complicated pattern from your image, but, no, it's a very simple design and the fabric print provides the illusion of something more involved in design. The diagonal pattern on the fabric is fabulous!
