I guess that ultimately, this is less of a review for this pattern and more of a word of caution: Use a sturdy knit for this dress. 





I used a floaty light-weight knit, and it did just not work.  So I wound up cutting it in half and turning it into a shirt, which I think actually works out better! 



I just finished the edges by surging them. 


And much more detail over at my blog::  http://rtthvintage.blogspot.com/2012/07/i-made-dress-that-wasnt.html

Good advice, thank you for sharing with us. But you chose a lovely pattern, it looks great as a top.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
