      Thanks so much! I think this is one of my fav makes yet- I just love how it drapes. This pattern really surprised me.

    If I’d seen your version, I might have bought the pattern before it went out of print! (Maybe the big belt hid all the cool style lines in the front?) Gorgeous dress.

      Thanks! I don’t know why they showed the pattern with that belt-it does hide the best part of the design! Plus the dark color on the model makes it really hard to see the drape.

    I’m so glad to see this made up. Like you I also stocked up on DK patterns before they disappeared and this was one of them. Your version is so much better than the pattern envelope – gorgeous!

      Thanks so much! I’m really glad I stocked up-DK patterns are always so interesting to sew up. I was so surprised how pretty this dress turned out-the envelope image does it no favors. So glad I gave this pattern a go!

    Oh that’s gorgeous! I love the drapey bits at the front and that’s an amazing colour!

  5. This color just shines on you!! (As does the color of your silk/hemp dress from a few months ago–I am a little jealous, if you couldn’t tell!) I love this dress on you and think you made a fabulous choice of color for it: as you say above, the envelope sample really doesn’t do the dress any justice at all. It’s all at once more complex than the average run-of-the-mill dress, but understated enough to be worn casually, too. Love!! =)

      Thanks so much Mads! I love both my DK dresses-and they were both so fun to make! Wasn’t that bronze silk gorgeous! I feel like I’m starting to get into the groove of what colors and silhouettes really work for me. Thanks again! :)

    So good to see this made up and read about the construction. It looks sensational on you. Love the chartreuse too. I also rushed out to buy this pattern and look forward to trying it when summer arives.
