What a helpful review! I love your maxi dress you adjusted the ease. That is too weird about Jalie having a lot of ease.

At first I was wondering how you got the fabric to wave, it does look great with your adjustments. Girl Charlee has not won me over, I have read other reviews stating the same thing about their fabric...thanks for the detailed review ;)

Dress is great on you, the fit is perfect and the print/colors lovely!! It's weird that these stripes create a slimming and sleak look!

Thanks for the great detail and explanation. I was considering this pattern...but will probably spring for one of the Big 4's similar.
