You did a fabulous job, from fabric selection to sewing to modeling the finished product. It's a great dress.

edited to add: I forgot to put in that before I ruched the sleeves I cut them so that they were about 3 inches above the elbow. Thanks for the comments! It actually took a lot of planning to place all the pieces on grain and in nice places of the pattern. I thought for sure I would have enough fabric left for a tshirt, lol, I have nothing left.

It is perfect on you! I love that sleeve runching too. I will try and remember that when I finally pull this top reviewed pattern out of my stash!

I think your dess should win an award for perfect pattern fabric matchup. Love the print placement especially on the neckline and the back too for that matter. And the runching on the sleeves. You did an amazing job on this. absolutely love everything about it!
