Picture perfect, your dress is nicer than the one on the model. I love your pink swirls.

Very cute dress and fabric that looks great on you! One would never know about the fussy areas by looking at your lovely finished result as you found the perfect solutions to some tricky spots. I too love this wrap dress style with lapel type collar.

Wow, I really do like your dress but understand about patterns being overly fussy! It looks pretty and summery!

The collar is what drew me. It looks just flawless. Thanks for sharing.

So pretty on you, I'm really liking this pattern the dress looks like it can be made from a woven too, I like the skirt also on this pattern thanks for bringing to my attention. Good idea on lining the next one, I find that's my preferred way to ditch the facings along with binding but for this dress it sounds like lining would be the way to go, don't you love that coverstitch!!! great review I will refer back to it when I make this pattern :)

I found the jacket in this pattern extremely fussy and quit it. I love the top - love it. Despite your frustration, your dress came out beautifully. It fits you really nicely too AND the fabric is nice. Just a win all around!

Very pretty dress! I've been wondering about this pattern and am glad for your review. I like the lapel collar a lot.
