What a beautiful dress!! LOVE the fabric and how lovely you look in it! So much prettier than what's on the pattern envelope too!

Great dress, brilliant alterations. I have this pattern and can't wait until next summer to make it.

I love the dress especially the bodice. I am putting that pattern in my wish list.

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.

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. :)

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

Love it!! You did a great job altering the bodice. This is the perfect floral dress!

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

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

Thankyou! freyaStark, I bought the fabric in a shop called Fabulous Fabrics (well named!) here in Perth, Western Australia
