I've only seen this in a solid, I wanted to make a second one that didn't look like the first one, perhaps as a print and sleeveless. And voila, now you've done it, and it's perfect. Thanks for the confirmation!

Marvelous use of a border print! Very pretty dress, love that it is a pull over because I don't do back zippers very well since shoulder surgeries. Thanks for sharing!

We've seen quite a few of these, but no one thought to try it with a print - I love it! (But darn you, I've already made this dress twice, and I now I want to make it again!)
