I made the blouse version of this, but just decided I might make up the dress version for an upcoming May wedding. Thanks for the review!

Lovely dress. I think this one will have to go on the to do list.

This looks perfect on you. I love the fabric and your sleeves look really good too. You must have lots of fabric warehouses in Hong Kong?

Wow, what a gorgeous dress! I love the fit of it, and am amazed it's just a pull on dress. Good job!

Very cute dress! I've been waiting for someone to sew this and post a review. Thanks for the construction tips!

I did the tunic version with the Burda method for shirring, but it still has a tendency to gather a bit as you sew, enough to make the front seams tricky. So yes, sewing them before makes sense :) And ditto for the bulky shirred lining.
