Super job and I love the alterations you made to the pattern. I have a similar pattern and was unsure about the gathered front. Now I know to pleat it instead. Thanks!

OMG, I don't know how I missed this back in February--what can I say?? Absolutely fantastic. I would never have looked twice at the pattern, but did a double take on your photo. I'm thinking I need to try this. Thank you so much for the review.

I also missed your review back in Feb. and needless to say I always look forward to them! Your idea to add pleats instead of gathers is great! Erica that's why you're soooo good!!!
