Very effective use of the border print - looks like another home run.

I love the way you thought outside the box with the border print. Very clever!

Why do I keep looking at this pattern and thinking it is for knits? Your dresses are lovely!

Both dresses are fabulous! Great to hear it was easy to sew! Had a good chuckle about the 'Mom arms'~I'm not the only person turning into her mother?

Love your fabrics, especially the coral - $1/yard WOW!

The dress and the fabric you chose are great. I'm right there with you on the evaluation of "mom arms" have them too. Even better with the price per yard of fabric. Great job.

Both dresses are so very pretty ~ love that coral paisley!

Very cute dress. I agree wholeheartedly on the small sleeve issue - what's with all these sleeves lately that look as if they shrunk before making it out of the starting block? Not a flattering look - happy to hear you removed them.

Very pretty dress!  I must add this pattern to my wish list!

Love both versions of this dress and chuckled at your comment about the 'strangled' arms. As I've gotten older, I sense my arms are getting closer to 'taking flight' so can totally relate! I have this pattern AND the fabric... just trying to get to it and glad to have read your review. Very helpful - thanks!
