3 years later I'm finally sewing this pattern, made a muslin and I'm about to put the neckband on...low and behold I will interface it thanks to this review. The next one I will definitely slash after putting the placket band on, I've done Stretch & Sew plackets and Jalie Plackets, all are different methods but I like this one...especially your revision, McCalls should hire you! I'm still waiting for your Blog?

Thanks for the review, I totally used your placket instructions and it turned out fabulous. It really is a great pattern, I am surprised at how cute the fit is.

I like your version so much better than the longer one on the cover. Perfect casual dress for summer.

Great looking dress! Love the fabric & placket. So cute! Glad you could make this pattern work, the placket seems to be giving everyone grief! :)

Super cute on you and fantastic review! I wish you had written this prior to me making it. No...I'm not making another. Love your fabric, too!

You do write the most helpful reviews! I never even noticed the short option on this pattern and yours looks terrific.

Love this dress! But would never have bought the pattern until I saw your execution and fabric. Really cute! One of the best reviews I've read and I could really follow it. Thanks so much.
