Thanks. I like the suggestion about removing the gathers.

Beautiful! I agree 100% with everything you say, I made it this week and it just turned out perfect, no need for Japanese :)

Fabulous tunic. I have been experimenting with Japanese patterns too lately and I think I need to add this book to my collection. I love your choice of fabric too.

This dress is darling! Yes, as MNBarb commented, can you tell us a bit more about the neckline finishing? So clean looking.

This is gorgeous. You have great taste and an eye for classy lines (I just looked through some of your other reviews as well). :)

This is such a wonderful match of fabric to pattern. I don't know what the neck treatment entailed but I'm guessing it wasn't some ugly facing because it lies so nice and flat. Aren't those pleats great? I can just feel the airy-ness of this dress on a hot summer day.

Very nicely done! I've never tried a Japanese pattern but your review has intrigued me.
