Congrats on your dress & the compliment received at the wedding! What a wonderful feminine style. I agree that thte shawl is a stunning addition to the outfit. Yet another pattern I should think about - I have way more than 5 lined up to make!

Thank you all so, so much! I've lurked in PR for ages and am well chuffed to finally have something to review. I've really got the bug since the dress came out so well and have got about 5 different patterns I want to try now; I just have to decide which to do first!

It looks great! I have made view A and view B in the past and I really like this pattern. Very feminine. I made view A in a drapy rayon challis in size 12 and I made view B in a cotton in size 10. I have gotten so many compliments on it. The skirt is in five pieces, as I recall and I used french seams to join them - no seam finishes required after that.
