If you look around for Alexander Henry fabric (including online), you may find this very print. If not this one, some similar that you might like.

I love love love this dress.  I love the idea of taking a simple pattern and dressing it up with fabulous fabric.

I bought this pattern and several others for ideas for my wedding dress, as I wanted something simple.  Thankfully I found this post!  I would have ended up making it waaay too short if I hadn't read it.  I'm 6' so I ended up needing it to be a little longer than the B view to hit me at the knee (I would have made the C view without your experience.)

All the other patterns I bought ended up looking awful on my figure.  This is definitly the way to go for larger gals.  I think it's really flattering on a large bust,  It's hard to find a summer dress that looks good and doesn't call too much attention to your chest!

The pattern was super easy to work with, and I added some more fullness to the skirt.  I was also inspired by what you did with the neckline and did something similar.

My boyfriend looked over when I was reading this post and said: "Wow that's cool!" I might have to try something similar. It's also good to know that I would need to buy a larger size than my dress size. Oh, and btw, I covet the fabric
