Very nice dress. Love that view. Great idea on the bias strip hem facing. Not positive I get what you did w/ the lining around the neck; did you sew it to the facing? Or leave it unattached? I had wanted to pick up this pattern, but they didn't have it when I went to the store. I should try again.

Nancy, you absolutely look darling in your new dress! Yours is so much prettier than the one on the pattern envelope! I am so glad you reviewed this because I have this pattern and have not had a chance to make it. Thanks for the helpful details!
