LOVE LOVE LOVE your dress! gotta pull this pattern out of my stash and make it. How did you mark the tucks? I find the idea intimidating. TIA.

Thanks so much! Carla, to make the tucks, I actually pinned the pattern tissue on my fabric at one corner and used a water-soluble marker to draw the center of the tucks on the right side of my fabric. (I fold the pattern tissue along the tuck and draw on my fabric right along the crease). Then I just fold the fabric on my line and stitch 1/4 inch away.
