Your are right on with the fit and the fabric pattern is fun! I too have the pattern and push it to the bottom of the pile as I am not a dress person. SOOO I am awaiting your review of the shirt length version. ;-)

Your dresses are lovely and flattering. I agree about the pattern cover looking frumpy and real people having lovely results. Thanks for this detailed review.
