Although I haven't made this yet, it looks perfect for our summer here in Qld, Australia where I live on the Fraser Coast which is sub-tropical so it's usually pretty hot in Summer, however with the global warming due to climate change, our summers are even hotter than ever. Thanks for such an attractive dress, I'm looking forward to making it and uploading a photograph of it. )

Unfortunately, when I clicked on the link it just took me to a web hosting platform, so no pattern was available. ( I'd be grateful if anyone has any suggestions to guide me towards a site where I can find this pattern please. Many thanks .... W.

This is such a great tutorial! I love it so much!

This dress is so, so gorgeous!1 And, by using this pattern, I am learning how to make a bodice without a pattern! THANKS!

Hello, I have attempted to view this pattern but when I clicked on the link it just sent me to a web hosting platform. Do you know how I could download this pattern, or would you by any chance still have a copy of it on your system? It's such a gorgeous pattern, and I especially love the pattern mixtures. I'd be most grateful if you could help me. Many Thanks, Wendy. )

Delightfully retro and oh so pretty too! I love the fact that the project is rated Easy too and the designer really has made sure that the tutorial is very easy to follow with no complicated aspects at all. The use of different fabrics for the top and the skirt is also a nice trick of the eye. A lovely dress for the lovely warm summers day.

I totally adore this dress too, but it looks quite complicated. Has anyone actually made it yet? I'm always a bit nervous when I don't have a printed pattern. I would really like to buy the print they've used for the skirt. I would appreciate any help and advice from someone who's had a go at this.

Hello Savvyness, I have a suggestion for you. If you are uncertain of a pattern, you could always try buying just some cheap calico and making a mock-up before using expensive fabric from the get-go. I hope my suggestion is of use to you. Cheers from the sub-tropical east coast of Australia, Wendy M. )

I would love to have a dress made like this so I could wear it on my birthday! My birthday is in a couple weeks so it looks like I need to hurry and get the fabric to start sewing! #bestideaever

#BestIdeaEver I love everything about this dress. It is so simple yet classy.

Loving the vintage vibe for this dress. Pair it with a red lip and you're good to go.

I love the combo of prints on this dress! The shape is pretty classic and would probably look flattering on everyone.
