Thanks for reviewing this - I'm thinking about making the longer sleeve version with the fitted skirt in a darker fabric. Great review!

Love this dress on you. I bought a madras to make this pattern with but now see that I might need a little black dress out of it. Yours fits so well and looks great.

This dress suits you very well - you look terrific in it! It looks like a high end store-bought dress too.

I love this dress more every time I see someone making it and looking so great in it! I really like this version with the sleeve, it really does make this pattern able to cross seasons.
