Fantastic! A cute, comfortable, flattering, versatile dress! Thank you for the review!

hahah thanks everyone! The photo is taken on one of the floating garden barges on the mooring where I live. And yup, that is Tower Bridge that we look at every day and (yes, Renen!) I walk over to work each day! :)

Well, the dress is very cute, and your haircut is cute too. Does this photo mean that you live with the bridge as the backdrop to your very life!?! I assume that's your garden you're standing in?

Lovely fabric! Is that the Tower Bridge in the background? What a shot!

Lovely dress! Love the hairstyle too. I didn't recognise you at first.

Cute dress and divine fabric. Looks like a very comfortable solution. Glad to read on your blog that your coverstitch is the one I covet - I'll know where to direct my questions when I get mine. Great starter tips too, my favourite necklines are V shaped, but I have to say they are not easy to make perfect. Thanks!

Fabulous dress - great fabric and black trim and your frankenpattern design was very successful! I also love your haircut - perfect for spring/summer.

I, too, think you have done a wonderful merge of these patterns and made a fabulous dress. And thanks for sharing glimpses of London with us. I presume we are seeing one of the towers supporting a bridge across the Thames, the one you walk across on the way to work and the cold winds whip your magnificent winter coat about your legs. See, you are like a rock star--we follow your every move! (I REALLY am not a stalker, honestly.)

Very pretty! You made good choices on the pattern, and you did a great job putting it together. I love the baackground of your picture, I am so jealous.
