Lovely! Very nice print too. Thanks for the advice about the pattern pieces, I bought this pattern a few weeks ago after waiting for it to go on sale. It was great to see it made up.

Very interesting to see this new pattern made up. The fashion drawing is very misleading with regard to the neckline and its good to have your info. on the yoke pattern pieces - I too would not have expected the two styles to be created this way. Presumably with some modification the tie ends could be extended from the yoke, though it would be a HUGE and oddly shaped pattern piece to cut out, and likewise the amount of fullness in the cowl could be modified ...? But I love your dress - it's far superior to the pattern photograph.
