what a beautiful summer dress

Great color and fabric for this pattern, it looks and drapes right. It has nice style, but doesn't look costume- y even while you used cool vintage notions. Well played! That shawl collar is laying very neatly, rounded, not iron smashed. Nicely crafted dress!

I love, love, love this pattern. You did such a nice job; what a great dress to wear. Those pockets are so very neat, and the darts in the skirt back look fabulous. I wish I had this pattern too!

Love the construction of the sleeves and the flow of the back with the nipped waist.

Very beautiful - I especially like the pleats in the back skirt. You did such a great job in the detail sewing. Impressive.

Sadly, they don't make patterns like this any more. It's a beautiful design, beautifully made.

Thanks for the note on "walking seams". That's something I forget to do and have so far, lucked out. I really love this pattern. I'm going to have to go see if I can find it.
