It's nice to see your smiling face again in a review. Thanks for tempting me with yet another Hot Pattern. Aargh. You picked a great color combination.

Very cool with the leggings! I like this on you. Interesting, you picked the color combination I'm wanting to use for a similar look. (I got the idea from the Mummy movie--there's a guy wearing a gunpowder grey/white striped kaftan with a crimson sash that I love.) Thanks for an inspiring review!

Really cute. Love the colors. Did you sew the leggings? What pattern?

Great looking dress. The red contrast bands really set off the main fabric. Good choice.

@chelsy21, I actually picked up the leggings for $4 at Target--they had something like four different lengths for that price. The fabric choice was sort of an impulse thing. I actually bought different fabric for this dress, but when I received my package from Melody with these pieces, they were right on top of each other and I liked how they looked together. :)

michelle: i'm curently working on this pattern after seeing how great it looks on you. did you include the optional buttons on your dress? or do you think they're not necessary?

elbai, I did not use the button closures. The ties are pretty secure, and I haven't had problems with the dress opening up.
