Nice dress! I just started cutting this out this weekend, and then read Marec's commentary on her blog, so thought I'd get some different feedback elsewhere. Should be a great dress in the current heat wave....

I am nearly a year late to the party on this one! OMG, what a fabulous dress: the piping, the pockets, the fabric, the everything. I imagine you stop traffic--in the best possible way--when you wear it!

Great review! I was going to make this in a knit but I think I will use a woven instead. I love how it drapes. And your fabric selection is awesome!

BEautiful dress. I love it in the cotton. I think it has a bit more structured look. I stayed away from this pattern, as I was worried it would look like a shmatta in a knit. This is great.

Wow! This is nothing short of a work of art!! I couldn't even venture a guess at what something like this would cost RTW. If you could even FIND it! Fabulous!

Wow, what beautiful execution and such a cute and unique style. I love love that you posted a pic of the dress on you! Fabric choice is fun, I would have never put a polished cotton with this pattern. Overall look is great!
