What about that neckline? Do you think it is revealing? It seems (from the line drawing) like it would show off way too much of the "girls" unless it was tightly tied, like in your picture.

I wasn't sure about this pattern but your review has changed my mind. Lovely dress.

moss -- that is the beauty of a drawstring. It is completely adjustable. You can show more or less if you choose.

Very cute! I was bummed that my Hancock's was out of this one. After seeing yours now I think that I "need" this one too!

I got this pattern on a whim and have been wondering "what was I thinking" since. This came out really cute. Thanks for the reassurance.

Another for my wishlist! I love that the neck is adjustable with a drawstring-- bring it up to pick up the kids from school, take it down for a night out. Great review~

Very cute dress! I have the same pattern I definitely think I will pull this from my ever growing stash.

I can't imagine this in a crisp cotton at all. In your knit (which is very cute) it works much better.

I agree with AnneM, your version in a knit fabric is much better than anything that could be in cotton! Good job, I love the color!

I been going back and forth about this pattern. Never thought to use a knit instead. I like that it skims yr body. Very flattering. I would probably nix the ruffles too. Great review.
