My photographer should have told me to lift up the chin...oh well. I do love this dress and it is very easy to wear and I got a few compliments (from a jogger and a biker).
This is a fabric hog, about four and a half yards. Luckily, SR Harris has a discount area on their cotton fabrics, this was four dollars a yard. It was a panel fabric, and I didn't want the print running straight up and down so I choose McCall's 7081.
The pattern is the standard sizing for McCall's, so I did my normal adjustments and everything fits nicely.
