Your review is so thorough, and the end result is stunning! I just bought this pattern, and some bird-of-paradise/plumeria apparel cotton from which to sew View A. I know that you tacked the overbodice to the straps, but I was thinking of lining the backs and making the bodice in a contrasting fabric, and folding them down as petals. Do you think that will work with this pattern? Many thanks!

This is seriously cute on you! Love the nose and mustache comment. I think you should make another in a navy blue and white striped cotton for next summer. Or better yet, make one for ME!

This is so pretty. You did a beautiful job. The yellow is spectacular. Your SBA (PBA!) was a hoot... and helpful to-boot.
