I know that it's been a while since you made this, but can you tell me if you did anything to reinforce the neckline? I am wondering, does the neckline fold down over time and not look as crisp anymore?

I did not but would if I make it again. It does tend to want to droop at times but does pretty well.

Thanks for your tips! I bought this 6+ months ago but.... I was curious if the pockets would look pouchy. In the meantime I came upon two oldies 1969 and 1980 quite similar with no waistline seam. The line drawing looks like a flared A-line so thanks for your “trumpet” comment. The flares in pattern pieces are deceptive. I’ll compare all 3 patterns and do a mock-up first. If I cannot eliminate zipper I’ll put it in the side. Thanks for your review.

I have this pattern in my queue and was thrilled to see it on you. I love it-what a pretty summer dress.

I love your interpretation of this pattern. The neckline, pockets and the trumpeting of the hemline. This neckline is now on my to-do list.

I like this dress. The neckline and pockets are great in this nice easy style.

With the flare it looks like a good thing for a hot day. I love the neckline feature.
