Very nice, easy pattern.
I made view C, size 8. Used a thicker white knit. It was very easy working with the fabric, enjoyed it all the way through. When I was finished with the bodice, I realized that it was a bit short, didn't come down to my waist. It had to do some with my choice of fabric too. Anyway, I tried to cheat by adding a belt.
Instructions were very straight forward, no issues following them.
Other than the short bodice, the pattern was perfect, I didn't make any modifications.

I recommend the pattern and I am going to use it more, trying out the other views too.

Looks like a good quality fabric. It would also look nice with a print or solid color sash or long tie belt... lots of possibilities - great for all occasions.

Very nice. I overlooked this view of the pattern, only seeing the cowl version! Thanks for your review.

Your version forced me to run out and buy the pattern, so I think you owe me $11. ;-) The dress is now in process, and I can only hope it's as lovely as yours.

It looks perfect. I wonder if you are long waisted like I am. It always feels like the waist is too short on me too. But visually, it looks absolutely perfect on you!
