I FINALLY made a dress with this pattern, its been sitting in my stash for about 18 months! I even got fabric for it about 6 months back. The fabric is a lovely soft cotton with little dark pink dots, I was pretty excited I found some little buttons that matched the dots perfectly!
I used the pattern pretty much straight as it was (only doing my normal alteration for a petite torso).
I would love to do this in a slightly heavier fabric, and maybe add some pretty pintucks down the torso or some dart details on the shoulders (like here! )
The dress is nice and casual, it has pockets, and I can even ride a bike in it! Thats a pass with flying colours!
