Your dress is lovely. I bought some fabric yesterday and this pattern would be ideal for it. Thank you for the heads up.

Gorgeous! I love how you combined the grains. It looks better on you than the model.

Surprised to see what you can do with such a basic pattern. You absolutely made it work. Gorgeous fabric and love how you played with the grain.

Lovely dress. Great use of fabric for the design. I have to admit I didn't remember seeing this pattern in the magazine, but you definitely made it memorable!

You've made an instantly desirable dress -- I want it! That fabric is perfect for the pattern and your work is superb. It looks great on you.

I am in the midst of making this dress, and I am stuck, because for some reason, the lovely painted leaf print silk crepe, in blues, greens and white, now looks like material for medical scrubs or smocks to me, and nothing I do can get that picture out of my mind. (I will try to post a photo of the material for reference). I am afraid people will think I escaped from the hospital while still wearing my smock! Anyone have any ideas about how to either modify the dress, or accessorize so it doesn't look like a hospital gown?

Hi Balired, I recommend posting this - with a pic if possible - in the message boards section so more people will see it. It may just all be about accessories - shoes, belt, jewellry to make it look less like hospital scrubs! Hope it can be saved.

Thanks Allie in HK! I will post it, although I may not be able to until after my trip to NYC tomorrow - was trying to finish it for the trip, but alas, life got in the way. :)
