So glad I looked at your review before starting my own dress! Yours is beautiful and I really appreciate your thorough review. I too was looking for a casual dress. I'll definitely be modifying the bodice so it's not so low-cut. I like the View B hem as shown on the pattern envelope but I think I'm going to use a straight hem instead based on your dress.

Wonderful summery dress. I love the stripes. Great idea adding the belt too.

Thanks for the tips. Sounds like we have similar size and fitting tasks. I was just getting ready to cut a muslin to understand how close, close fitting really is. Thanks for your review

A lovely cool-looking dress, just the thing for a hot summer. I love the fabric.

Wow, that looks so perfect for summer. I'm totally jealous of that fabric.

Hi Annette! What pretty linen for this cute summer dress. I really like that band with horizontal stripe to give an interesting contrast to the design. Enjoy wearing it in these warm and hot months to come.

What an excellent review! Looks like you have a new, pretty dress WITH SLEEVES! It looks great on you. I agree that it definitely isn't close fitting (like the pattern said), but it looks very nice on you and will be great to wear to keep cool in the Nebraska heat.

A great dress. Just looking at your picture makes me think of walking on the beach enjoying a summer breeze.

Annette, this is such a beautifully casual look. I am also in utter envy of that linen. Really cool dress.
