  1. Hi Mimi! I found your blog through Sewing Pattern review a while ago and I've been quietly following your projects ever since. This dress, like your other projects, is really lovely. You always do such a great job and serve as an inspiration to me in my sewing room:)

  2. Hi Sew Do It Already 🙂 so nice to meet you! Thanks for your generous comments, I appreciate that very much and am so happy I could inspire you….or anyone for that matter, lolxoxomimi g.

  3. Great dress in a great color. I agree…the scoop neckline is very lovely and I love the sleeves. I like how slim they look with the pooling at the bottom.

  4. Amazing color and fit. I pulled that very same pattern out a couple of weeks ago. I was planning on making one of the other views with the oversized cowl as a tunic. I just might give it a try after seeing yours.

  5. Um-um-um, I love this! this is so simple, yet so chic! The color~ WOW! The shoes, need I say more!! Girl, you are doing the doggone thang!!When I grow up, I'm gonna be just like you, LOL!
