    Such a lovely bunch of dresses! I really like the fabric you picked for yours (and was secretly hoping to see you wearing it at the NYLon meet-up).

      Thanks Daniela, it was lovely to see you there! I didn’t want to wear the dress before I had revealed it on the blog! 🙂

    That dress is so wonderful, floral is so trendy right now. What a perfect fabric selection for a perfect dress pattern.

      Glad you found the information! Good luck. If you have any questions feel free to comment on the appropriate post. The sewalong is over but obviously I am still able to help!

    How gorgeous is that? A perfect wear-with-everything dress, just right in that lovely floral fabric, too. One day I will go back through your sew along and make one myself. Yip!
