    Thanks everyone for the positive comments! This dress sat unfinished for quite some time but I’m glad I stuck with it. If anyone plans on making this one, the neckline is a bit tricky. I ended up tacking the shoulder darts to get them to sit properly.

    Wow! I was just looking at this pattern on the Butterick website and I must say you have definitely made it look a whole lot better than they did. The fabric print is to die for and the dress is super adorable on you!

    The print works so well with the lines of this dress! I love the red buttons, too.
