What a pretty dress. It looks as though the fit is perfect and I love the mix of fabrics. Nice covered buttons!

I think the covered buttons are my favorite part. What a darling detail!

What a lovely dress! So summery. It looks like the perfect marriage of fabrics. I find it so hard to coordinate fabrics in a garment, and here you've done it beautifully.

Great job! I have been wanting to make a shirt dress for a long time now. Yours inspired me to move that up to the top of my must sew list. Thanks for the review.

Beautiful -- your dress inspires me to make something with contrasting fabrics! Love the retro look of the dress.

I love the pears for contrast! I've had this in my stash for ages and have wanted to do a version with a solid for contrast, but your dress inspires me to think outside the box.

Lovely dress!

Thank you! I was disappointed to have to skip the sash because I thought I had a shortage of the pear fabric from my stash-- but I just cane across a folded piece just big enough for the sash, so I will add it tonight!

That is a really cute dress. I love how the two fabrics contrast but look so nice together.

A lovely dress. It looks very cool, crisp and summery, and it looks good without a belt, too. Thanks for a useful review. It encourages me to move this pattern further up my mental list of priorities.
