    Ahhh!!! I love it! You look so great in it too. I bought the Fringe pattern, but I have yet to make it. I am definitely going to have to do that soon. 🙂

      Thank you Skyler!! I love it too and you have to send me a picture when you make yours! It’s such a fun dress to wear and it’s really comfortable. It comes together really quickly, so don’t be intimidated by how many pieces there are! I also didn’t realize there were separate pattern pieces for the interfacing, so make sure you pay attention to that. 🙂

    This is great, thank you! Also, I’ve been looking for sandals like that. Might you be able to tell me where to find some? 😀

      I’m glad you liked it, Leah! I got them from Target last year! I just found the same ones on Target.com in two different colors, so just search “Women’s Gena Strappy Flat Huarache Sandals Mossimo Supply Co.”. 🙂

    Great job- love the pattern and the fabric! What is considered tall? I’ve never made a dress for myself (starting a few this spring) and am wondering if I should consider adding length to the bodice. I’m 5’8″. Tx!

      Hi Tania! I am 5’11 and my natural waist falls 1.5 inches lower than most dress patterns, so that is why I added length to the bodice. I usually have to lower bust darts and waistlines since my torso is a bit longer. But if you don’t usually have problems with waistlines hitting you too high, then you shouldn’t have to lengthen the bodice.

    I have just started sewing….and I’m just about 6ft tall. I just wanted to say thank you for mentioning the extra bits about adding length here and there! The biggest struggle I’ve had so far is understanding how to hack a pattern for Me.

      Hi Emily! I am so happy to hear that information helped you! It takes a few makes (or a quite a few, in my case) to get it right, but there are lots of tall sewing bloggers who share how to adjust certain patterns. Let me know if you have any questions, and make sure you check out the #sewingtall hashtag. <3
