Great looking dress! You are right, nobody will notice the un-mirrored lace print when you gallop by on your horse, you will just look chic and lovely!

Absolutely beautiful -- special while wearable, at the same time. What a great fall piece.

I would never have noticed this pattern from the picture of the model, however, on you it really shows off your hourglass shape. Very nice, and I agree with others that the knit print placement looks intentional (but it's really nice to know that even excellent seamstresses can miss something!).

Nicely done! I'll have to reconsider that pattern after seeing your version - love it!

I too fell in love with this pattern; have not made it yet. Glad to read your review and to learn that this was as easy to sew as it looked.

This looks great, much better than the website photo would lead one to believe! And I promise to bob up and down if ever I meet you IRL, to mimic the horse gallop effect. I'm sure I won't see anything amiss, LOL!

I would have never thought that the knit pattern was not matching. I think most people won't think to notice or look because it is lace. Your dress is gorgeous btw! Watch out Houston this Fall!!

Very cute and *much* better than the version on the pattern envelope! I'm glad to see this made up!

This dress looks fantastic on you, Dorcas! Love your fabric choices! I'm off to buy this pattern now that I've seen yours. Let's just be glad we don't live closer to one another!

Very pretty fabric and dress! I think you did a great job with the lace.

for an extremely easy to put together dress this turned out sensational, the contrast really gave it the edge along with the design of this dress. I think your placement of the lace print looks intentional. I only looked at it closer because you mentioned it otherwise I did not notice. Real nice addition to your wardrobe :)

"it will never be noticed on a galloping horse" LOL!!! Your dress looks great. I did not notice this pattern. So glad you reviewed it. I'm out the door to purchase it now. BTW, are you adding an addition to your house for all of your beautiful new clothes? ;-)

How great looking that is... I hadn't noticed the pattern yet. Almost looks like you're wearing a shrug over a dress.

Your version is much nicer than the envelope. I especially like the back! You can't tell on the pattern match, although I know what you mean...currently working with a patterned woven and very little fabric.
