It turned out really cute! Loved how you solved the design challenge of the buttons. I'm with you on the frustration of patterns turning out way too huge for the proper measurements. I feel like starting a campaign to get rid of all that excess wearing ease. It wastes people's time having to go back and alter. Maybe the pattern companies are in cohoots with the fabric industry so they can sell more fabric.

Where to start? Fabulous on you, love the addition of the knit at the midriff, amazing transformation of an old shirt, beautiful fabric. I want to hang out in your sewing studio and watch you work.

Wow Anita, this is fantastic on so many counts! Re fashioning something that was thrown away, using the buttons in the back, adding the knit back, the elastic in the straps. It's a very flattering Florida dress and a review I am keeping for all its great ideas. Very helpful.

Very clever! I would never have guessed that this dress originated as a shirt. Really cute.
