patternreview for this dress, which has a few more details and a bit less about the profanity involved in creating it - since most of my issues were self-created, it didn't seem fair to really dump on the pattern, which is actually quite nice.
As I said in the review, I don't think I'll make it again, but that's mainly because it's a pretty distinctive look.
It's as cold as February here today, so the dress did not get taken out for a test drive. I'm out of practice with winter; getting outside at 6:30 a.m. to give the chickens their water (I take it in otherwise it freezes overnight) has been downright painful.
Photos will arrive when warmer weather does. The photo here is from My Image, and proves that I'm not the only one out there who likes a loud print.
