I was so glad to find a review on this. I bought this one and this is the only thing besides some pants that appealed to me. Your dress is lovely.

Great review and great looking dress. Yes, it's very timeless and I'm sure you'll get lots of use from the pattern, now that you've mastered the construction in the absence of instructions.

looks great! I was also eyeing up this dress (or the orange variant).

Nice dress and very classic. I think a belt would be nice but could go without just as easy.

It's very pretty -- not boring at all. Very professional looking result, too.

Carolyn: there are princess seams that extend to a small yoke that sits at the top of the shoulders. I hope that makes sense!

I really like your choice of fabric & the buttons are a nice accent. Very helpful review too.

Very nice. Does it have shoulder princess seams? I can't quite tell from the picture.

It looks so elegant. Congratulations on your first WOF. I agree about interfacing... what's good enough for Loes is good enough for me!

Very classic look--you might try a print scarf at the waist or make a bright and/or printed obi-type sash.

This looks very classic and well-made! Nice job!

This is lovely on you and you did a great job with the WOF instructions (or lack thereof). I think a print would be great, but this linen version is, as you say, a timeless classic. And I like it without a belt, even if it isn't very fitted. Very nice! Post another review if you make another, please.

Actually, I was about to suggest a braided leather belt just before I got to the sentence where you mentioned one. Thanks for the review and for reminding me about this great pattern.
