Nice job but I'm with you on those "optional" gussets. How bizarre!

Looks nice and cool and summery, the gusset idea is a little strange though.

I love the hood, and the snap in gusset sounds fascinating!

It is a cute dress and I love your choice of fabric. Optional gussets? Weird! It looks cute with the tank underneath. :)

You've done a nice job with this style. Sounds like your winter idea will work well in corduroy.

Great job and I have to tell you that this review made me smile because it was one of the first patterns I learned how to sew with back in home economics class!

Very nice! The gussets do sound weird, but anyway the dress looks great on you!

great review. Some of those '70s patterns were pretty funny compared to how we wear things today. I had a similar experience with a wrap dress pattern being too low on the sides. It does look pretty on you.
