Thanks for the review - this pattern reminds me of a fave Butterick dress from the late '60s. Good to see the armscye - i was wondering about that...The dress really looks like a winner for your summer wardrobe.

Great look for you! I had not noticed this pattern before. What a neat idea to make a shirtdress without buttons or zippers. I love it already. :)

This is really cute on you. I can remember my mother sewing a triangle piece in the armhole when it was too deep, like we sometimes do now in the front of a too-deep neckline. It sure would beat having to wear another layer in this summer heat.

This is a great review. I've already bought the pattern but was wondering how it would be actually sewed up. You did a nice job..and seersucker goes with summer time in all the right ways
