Thanks, Debbie. I've had this pattern in my stash for a long time and am getting ready to make it up tomorrow. Your dress is very cute!

Your dress turned out beautifully, even though you had all the problems. Your techniques to save thee dress were mighty clever. That fabric is adorable. Great review, too.

What a great dress. I love the fabric, and I really like the solid orange accent fabric you used.

So cute. And that was a wonderful "design feature" adding the neck pleats :-) The orange trim gives even more PoP to the outfit...Orange is one of my favorite colors.

Great job. I thought it had kimono sleeves as part of the pattern before reading your review. You made this dress your own!

I would never have seen this pattern in this fabric. It is so creative, with the contrast. I love it! Great job.

I'm really loving all these cute dresses you are making. The print and contrast on this one are so striking. TYour new dresses are making me unhappy with my summer capri set uniform. Lol!

What a great dress! It not only looks great on you, but after looking at the line drawings, it looks very comfortable, too.

Very nice - love your neckline fix. I have done this and wondered if it was the "right" thing to do - so you affirmed for me it is ok! I love the orange contrasts.

Bold and beautiful on you.

The dress is great. The fabric colour, with the orange trim and the style. The whole effect is terrific!

Your dress is absolutely fantastic!!! You make such great color and design choices... have you training in art and clothing design? Or just a great natural talent blended with experience?
