I received a gift certificate to Marimekko for my birthday so I picked out the fabric first and then the pattern. I really like how well the simplicity of the pattern works with the fabric. I did make one small change, however. The pattern called for two armhole cuffs to be sewn around the armholes but they didn’t work well with the rest of the dress so I just sewed the armholes without them.
