I love this pattern too. I zapped it together in no time just to use up some fabric that needed to be used or given away. I get more comments on it than for any other pattern I have sewn. I used a serger to put it together with cowl neck. It is low too as mentioned above. I didn't have quite enough fabric to make the sleeves so I jus t made another little pattern piece got the difference.

Your dresses are so cute. I'm having a problem with mine in that the neckband won't stand up. If I made it again, I would interface the band with fusible knit. I did stay-tape the neckline so it wouldn't stretch, but I agree it is still very large -- and getting larger as I fold my band to the inside over the seam allowance and stitch it down.

@ thepattyc: I got the squid fabric from (custom printed fabrics; it's a really neat website) and the green leopard print from Fabricland.

They both look very nice. Thanks for mentioning that it feels low cut. It doesn't look like it on you, but if you don't feel comfortable, that's all that matters. I was thinking that the pattern looked a bit too low cut when I cut it out. Even though I'm making the size medium, I have decided to leave the neck on the small size. I would rather do some surgery on the garment than to be worrying about fiddling around with the neck because it's too low cut. Where did you get your fabric? I really like it.

I wouldn't have given this pattern a second glance but after seeing your two dresses I think I mah have to get it! I think both of them look great on you and I can see how easy they would be to wear!
