Thanks for the review. Very cute dress and looks like it fits you to a T....And welcome to Pattern Review! I think I find Butterick's fit smaller also.

Great job! It fits you very nicely and the color and weight of the fabric look nice too. Glad you mentioned it ran a bit small. They didn't have 14 (my "chart size") in stock, so I was counting on it running a bit large (which is what I've usually encountered). Now I know to run out and get another one. What did you use for the lining?

I actually just used the same fabric for the lining. Worked very well and gave it a little more heft, which I really like.

The other reviewers of this pattern used heavier weight fabrics than you did, but I think it looks much nicer this way.
