What a beautiful spring/summer dress. Great decision to choose a more fitted top for, as you say, a well proportioned silhouette.

Lovely, lovely work and so thoughtful. The fabric choice on the pattern front is very oddly placed.

Gorgeous dress! It looks so feminine on you, showing off your lovely figure perfectly. How did you do the petticoat?

LOVE!!! Absolutely perfect fabric for that pattern (or vice versa)!! Makes me want to go sip lemonade in the garden...'cept it's snowing right now. :)

What a gorgeous dress! Your version is so much nicer than the pattern photo--I never paid attention to this pattern because of the strange fabric choice in their photo. Your version is lovely. I really like your pleated, fitted bodice.
