Very pretty dress and top, and a clever fix for the poor tie directions. Thank you for adding the photos of your tips. They are very useful. You always look terrific in your creations.

These turned out great. I especially like the long-sleeve version of the top. I've made it with short sleeves, but after seeing yours I think I'll try a long-sleeve version as well.

Oh I just bought this pattern. I love both your versions. The enclosed tie and facingless edges are great improvements that I will have to try!

I love both garments - they look great on you. And thanks for just a detailed review. I'm going to make this dress and I'm definitely following your method for the sash/ties.

I love this version of the pattern-how fun to see all your work together. After seeing the short/cap sleeves on you, I think I'll try that next with this great pattern.
