Who can not love this dress! Saw it on craftster first- got the pattern during a 99 cent Butterick sale. I love the fabric, it seems like it was made just for this dress!

I altered the pattern a tiny bit, I didn't like the gaping neckline, so I added some elastic shirring under the neckline and sleeves to pull them off my shoulders.

I apologize for the fuzzy pictures- mom is not so good with digital cameras...

The dress:



Bodice closeup- you can see the fabric a bit better:

And lastly, the obligatory artsy whirl-away shot:

I love it! I love this pattern. I also picked it up when it was  on sale because I have seen so many cute dresses made with this pattern. I am going to finish mine this weekend.
