This is such a pretty dress and the fit is wonderful. I wish your dress was hanging in MY closet!

This is so lovely on you! I hope to see you in it as some upcoming sewing event. Thanks for the jelly roll suggestion. Nice work and thanks for sharing your interesting review.

I really love your dress! The fit is great and the print is gorgeous. I think that next time I make this I'll use a bound neckline - I was actually surprised that the turn twice edge worked at all - yours looks better!

Rustybobn, thanks, I will definitely check it out. In my mind it seems it would look better than the hand stitching, at least my hand stitching.

Your dress looks great on you! I love this pattern. I've made it 2 times so far-will probably make another one for summer.

Very cute. I like that this pattern has two views that are quite different. Thanks for the review.

Beth - this really fits you well and looks cool and comfortable for summer. You just can't beat Stretch & Sew methods:) I still use them, too.

The Canadian, I usually use it on shirt yokes. You can find the technique many places--I've blogged about it here:

This looks very nice on you. I have never heard of this "jellyroll", may look into that a little further.
