Please stop for a moment and enjoy the pure, unadulterated awesome that is this dress, okay? No, really, stop and take it in. Ahhhhhh.
It's really such a good dress, and I'm ashamed to say I haven't made mine yet. (It's the not knowing where to put the pockets that is holding me back.) And in spending time tidying up the sewing room this weekend I discovered I have at least three copies of this pattern (I guess I bought it every time it was on $1.99 sale, thinking I'd have to really fuss with it to solve the pocket problem) so I really have no excuse.
I had no excuse to be tidying up the sewing room, either, given all the other stuff I should be doing right now, but it had reached that stage where small children would wander in and vanish without a trace (except, late in the night, you could sometimes hear the sound of someone furtively using expensive sewing shears to cut paper), and it was making me itchy. So I finished sorting out all of my sewing patterns into binders. Expect a picture when I find my camera-battery charger. In the meantime, while you're waiting, go click on the image above to read the review of this pattern.
