Un joli tissu, de jolis plis, de jolies poches, de la simplicité mais néanmoins de l'élégance ! Toutes mes félicitations.

You're a beginner? Wow! Excellent job! Your topstitching is impeccable! I've been eyeing this pattern, and I really want to make it now! I love the pleats, and the big pockets. Cute!

Love your dress and your image of the french school teacher! I made this in the sleeveless version and it is one of my favorite summer dresses- always gets a compliment.

Wow, this is a really cute dress . . . much more attractive and fun-looking than it appears on the pattern! Thanks for a great review . . . I think I'll have to pick up this pattern.

Thanks, everyone, I really appreciate all your comments. AuntieShel, if you can figure out that back tuck, I'd be all ears! And great prewashing tip for the linen, bellelass -- thanks.

You did a fabulous job on this dress, it is so adorable!! LOVE those pockets (although I do not need any added width at my hips.) Am going to go back and reread the instructions for those back pleats, as a few other reviewers have mentioned problems with them as well.

It's adorable and pockets on a dress, especially fab pockets like these, I love it.

Chic French school teacher indeed! I love this dress, and yours makes we want to sew it again in a linen.

That's a really cool little dress. A tip for working with linen- pre-wash it three or four times, letting it dry between washes. That softens the fibers and rather than creasing with wear, it gently rumples or doesn't bother wrinkling at all.

I think this is so adorable. You're right - very Project Runway! :) The color is great and the solid really shows off the architecture of the dress. Super cute!

This is a very nice dress - The fabric, color, large pockets - all very attractive.
