I love the seersucker! Widening the straps was so smart. It drives me nuts when my straps show. Great dress.

The alterations made are definately inspiring, but the review needs information on how the original muslin that was made from the unchanged pattern fit.

What a cute dress! I love the fabric too - seersucker is so nice and summery. You have talent. :-)

Seersucker! One of my all time favorites fabrics - this is really great combination of the design and fabric.

Very nice! Good idea to do the muslin first. It fits so nicely now, you definately need to make another one:)

Any song? Or is there one in particular? It looks like seersucker. The wider straps look like they were intended to be that way. You wear it well! Nice job. Nice review.

Gloriously feminine. Ann Margaret in an Elvis Presley movie comes to mind. You did a great job.
