It is a pretty dress. You did a great job and I love the fabric. For me, though, I would have been careful cutting it out not to place the bright red palm trees exactly on each bosom!

Lovely! I loved your blog glamor pics as well. So cute. If I lived in Australia. . .

Lovely! The dress looks good in a Hawaiian print, and it's nice to see someone else enjoying Hawaiian prints as much as I do. This pattern is in my stash, too, so thanks for reminding me of its existence.

very nice dress. You look "marvelous dear, just marvelous" I think it brings on a bit of the retro vibe going around. I would have a red brimmed hat and sandals. Wonderful choice of fabric. Great sewing job.
