I have to confess that this dress is not as flattering on me as I had envisioned. (Believe me, I deleted a lot of photos before I decided to keep these). I don't fault the pattern, I fault my round, cylindrical, rectangle body where there is little differentiation between bust, waist and hip measurements. I think this pattern would be gorgeous on a more curvaceous body.
I am so slow at blogging my projects that these pictures were taken at the end of July. My daughter was my photographer, and during our "photo-shoot" these Texas sage were blooming away, almost a perfect match for my dress (despite the above photos, the fabric is more THIS color).
