    Lovely dress and beautiful print. Hope this is for someplace special. Am I correct, is this a March pattern?

      Thank you! I think this pattern was released early last year, if I remember rightly. I actually wear these dresses everywhere, always over dressed!

    Oh! It’s so beautiful and summery!

    I looked at your blog post on the dress—11 inches of ease?! Holy Moly! I’m never cutting out a pattern without measuring first again.

    I’m looking forward to seeing the results of the Marfy pattern.

      Thanks! Crazy how much ease these companies build in, I don’t know anybody who wears clothing that baggy! I actually did a double take when I checked the finished measurements on the paper pattern, thought I was reading it wrong……
