    Such a sweet dress! I think you did a great job fitting a wonky pattern, and you’ve motivated me to try to fix those messed up Peony darts!

    I think the pockets work fine with it. The contrasting belt does amazing things. Not making the belt was a great idea. I just got The Colette book and I think I’ll be trying it. It looks amazing on you.

    This dress looks lovely, pockets and all! You made it work in the end and that’s what counts.
