This is the dress I wore for my company’s annual picnic. I’ve been co-chair for two years and assisted with the coordination. For 2014 I took on the chair position in the committee. I pulled together a fantastic team of genius thinkers and we had one of the best events I could have possibly imagined.

photo/drawing on the pattern envelope ? Yes
Were the instructions
easy to follow? Yes the instructions were
very easy to follow.
What did you
particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the details of this pattern, pin tucks
rock. They give such nice dimension and depth to the structure and overall look
of a garment.

Sorry about the go-funny eye in the photo below, not sure what I was trying to do. But it was not the most flattering pose 🙂
