This looks adorable -- I`m quite envious because I`ve done this pattern three times now and none of them have turned out this well. I am starting to think that my affection for this pattern is based solely on its potential rather than its reality.

Thank you for the lovely review for my simplicity dress - I hope you don't mind, but I had a look at your reviews and I love your dresses! This one is fantastic; the shape is lovely and the fabric is amazing. I've had zip issues too; I had to put my first invisible zip in by hand because I didn't have the right foot. You only do something like that once. Great tights too!

Thank you :) I bought the material in London, in one of a row of small fabric shops. I'll look up the name of the shop next time I'm there but I suspect it doesn't have a website.

Pretty summer dress. I'm in love with the fabric. Where can I get mine?

Nice dress! You did a great job of matching the pattern on the fabric.

Great, brilliant pattern matching. Well done.

I like your fabric and I think your back zip is better than you give yourself credit for.

Love it! The fabric is great. I'm 5'3" and short waisted and I had bad luck with this pattern, too (this pattern taught me not to trust the pre-printed petite shortening lines).

Very cute! Another beautiful example of my current favorite pattern.

I'm quite taken with that neckline and the cap sleeves. I love the dress's 50s vibe. Good job!
