I just picked up this pattern yesterday. I am very thankful for the heads up on the sizing, pleats, marking & cuff to sleeve construction. Your dress looks great!

Beautiful, as always. I bet this looked great on you. I'm with you about sleeveless in the winter.

Lovely dress. I think the brooch really adds a nice touch. How lucky to find something that worked so well in your costume jewelry "stash." I'd love to see a photo of you wearing the dress.

Thanks for the review! I'm actually sewing this dress now for my daughter. She plans to wear it to work with a cami under it. Your dress is gorgeous!

That is one gorgeous dress -- the color caught my eye, and your review is so helpful! Thanks so much. I also find that sewing cuffs, etc is SO much easier flat - why do instructions always direct us to sew in the round? I mean, I know there are shaping advantages to sewing in the round, but the screw-up possibilities just shoot up exponentially for me, which more than balances it out.
