Ooo, sorry I didn't get here sooner. Hmmm. Well, now I see what you mean about the shapeless sack dress. Um... and I hate to say it, but basically this is that same dress that I made for TLo and The Big One... er... which means you're wearing the same dress the 6-year-olds are wearing. I can see where that wouldn't end well. On the other hand, totally excellent beach wrap! It is cute fabric. Curious to see if you alter it into something else. You'll have to update your review.

Oh dear, too bad the end result wasn't pleasing you. :( I like the fabric, though.

Thanks! Tried it belted but didn't care for it that way either. I actually like the way it looks in photos better than real life, so maybe it will become a house dress. hmmmm

Don't cut it. Just wear it around home if you don't love it. I think it looks cool and comfy.

I like this pattern and your dress very much. Have you considered adding a belt? That might save it from your scissors ;-) I made a similar look recently and wear it around the house and yard.
