      Thank you. I bought them a few years ago at Ross/TJMaxx (don’t remember which one). They’re from Juicy Couture but I don’t know if they still make them.

    Totally adorable! I love the pairing of this pattern with a polka dot fabric – it fits the fun, flirty vibe of the dress so well. You look fantastic in it.

    This is such a nice version of the dress. I got the book too and that’s my favourite pattern. I am looking forward to spring to make one.

      Thanks, Lisarae! It’s a great design and I think it would look beautiful in any fabric.
