So, if you have not made this pattern yet and like dresses, don't be like me, just sew it up!

I sewed this up before the Olympics, once the Olympics are on I have to watch, although I think I had my own pattern cutting Olympics in front of the T.V. When we were kids we used to play Olympics and we wanted to be Olympians when we grew up, but alas it was not to happen. The best I could do was second place in the high jump. I lost to one of the other tall girls in school.

I was thinking I need to just sew a pattern I've used before, but nothing is sparking my interest. Hopefully there's a tall thin person out there needing a bright colorful dress.
This pattern is now in the donation bag with the dress.

This is another one of the dresses that did not let me enjoy sewing. The top did fit, but the pleats did not work in the back, so even though I wanted to throw this away, I picked out the back and added gathers instead. The bottom band did not fit well and it was a lot of futzing to get them together.
The fabric was from JoAnne's (last year) it is such a pretty fabric and I love the color, but it is very lightweight, and I don't think it's going to be durable.
