I love it, too. The dress looks a bit plain in the magazine, but with your cute fabric, you can really see the potential in this simple design.

Angie, this dress is adorable, and the pictures of your topstitching are perfect. What a great breezy dress this turned out to be. So, you are saying you went from 5.5 yds to 2 just because of adding a back seam? Wow! Love the print and that bright blue color on you. Darlin, you look soooo pretty and fresh in that dress! You are ready to step on out into spring!

You look great in this dress, Angie. I'm going to check out the pattern more closely now. Very nice job.

Don't you look adorable in your pretty dress! I don't think I've seen a picture of you full length. That fabric is so pretty. I can't believe you were able to cut that dress out of the fabric you had! Thanks for the nice review. Good job.

You look FABULOUS! I was looking at this too, but thought that 5 yards was a bit much. So glad to hear that you can make it with so much less.

You and the dress are gorgeous. And I love your sandals - do you mind reporting what brand they are? I'm on the hunt for a summer sandal.

OMG! That is so cute....I want one just like it. How did you manage to fit all the pieces in 2 yds. vs. 5 yds?
