London, United K...
I was so in love with this pattern that I decided to make a second dress from it.
This dress took me five days (or rather, evenings after work) to sew because of the amount of hand-work: the lining and zipper were attached entirely by hand.
There are a few interesting details about this dress. The dress is un-hemmed because it is finished with the selvage, and so there is a minimum risk of fraying. Interestingly, each panel was printed on crosswise grain and so I cut it this way.
