This is a very cute dress! I have used the Kwik Sew top several times. Can you give me a bit more detail on lengthening it into a dress. You said that the bottom part of the dress is from an old there any pattern more current that would show me the bottom. I like that yours is not too full. No zipper, right? Just a throw on and go dress? Love them. Pretty fabric, too.

This KS top pattern is one of my all time favourites. I really like your dress. I'm also wondering if the bottom of it was just a slight A line or a bit more.

I love your dress! I haven't seen this pattern before, so seeing your review pop up was great. :) I'm curious to try your interfacing technique.

How pretty and versatile your dress is! And how clever - successfully making a dress out of a top! Thanks for sharing what you figured out with us. (PS - Late because of being preoccupied with travel plans overseas for my daughter's wedding, I tried thanking you yesterday (when I read it for the 1st time) for your personal email to me re: your amazing pants!! - Due to my lateness, I think my response didn't transmit (I'm not a Friends of PR member).

Well, I'm not tired of it :-) The top and the dress are both delightful. I love how you created the dress especially.

Your knit top really gives this pattern an up-to-date look. Great fabric choice. I also like how you lengthened into a dress. Another great idea. :)
