Wow - I'm so happy to see your version of this pattern. I was uncertain by the envelope but I'll have to give it a little more consideration! Great job!

The fabric choice is genius. And wearing it inside out , need to try that

Lovely - I like your version with the unnpressed bubble skirt better than the pattern envelope. Thanks for a great review

I made this one last summer in a linen. I left off the bubble completion with the lining excluded. Fortunately the bodice is lined with self fabric so that it doesn't pop around. Its a very fun dress but fit can be problematic in the bust area. I have been thinking of making another with some sort of cap sleeve addition. It's a crazy pattern but flattering. I am happy to see another go at it...excellent!

@sue parrot, have you checked out GABC's review on her beautiful linen version? I am too short for that dress length. The pattern silhouette flattery calls for small shoulders and I am surprise that the dress fits my big shoulders.

How have I missed this pattern? I love your version. How do you think it would look without the bubble hem? That is my only hesitation!

I would've never given this pattern a second look but I love your version of it. Including the softer pleats.

with prttynpnk, was just looking at this one and wondering how it would really look made up. Thanks, the dress looks beautifully made.

This is a pattern I've loved but feared- beautifully done!

Thanks for the detailed review. I have this pattern and have been hesitating about the bubble hem. I love your version!

That is quite a unique dress! It looks great on you and I like your fabric choice - very neutral so all attention is drawn to the interesting construction details. Lovely!
