I just finished this last night:





From Simplicity 4171 - the only changes I made were to eliminate the piping, and to do solid flaps on the pockets with contrasting stitching, instead of pieced pockets.  (These decisions were equal parts design choice and laziness.)  Oh, and I only had the buttons go halfway down, then sewed the skirt of the dress shut in front - this was a "I don't enjoy accidentally flashing strangers" choice!

This pattern was great - very easy to use, with good instructions.  The complicated bits, like the pieced collar and pleated, gathered sleeves, came together nicely.  I'm definitely using this pattern again - seems like it could be very versatile, with the different collar and sleeve options.  I am loving shirtdresses in general right now, so I might try the long-sleeved, plain collar version for the fall.

I love it! I think the colours you chose are perfect, and it looks beautifully made.  Gosh.  I googled the pattern, and I think they should put a picture of your version on the front.  Yours is much prettier than theirs. Smiley
