Cute pattern - one confusing section

I enjoyed how this pattern turned out. The only confusing part was the placket. I feel it could be sewn a different way but I’m not sure how. For the waist, I used elastic thread in the bobbin to give the dress some shape.

Overall, the experience was great, I had ah few hiccups with the placket, where one side hadta be made ah little longer in order for the placket to lay flush against the shirt itself, bt overall ah great pattern, with ah lot of details & possibilities. Thanks

Darling but frustrating!

Love the look of this dress. I color blocked it by making the top of the dress a different color than the bottom. (I used the shirt top and skirt bottom). I have used dozens of Pixie's patterns, but this was the most challenging. I had to go to YOU TUBE for help with the placket--that worked! Right now I'm working on the collar. YIKES! Can't tell the top from the bottom of the collar piece--is it long enough? I've spent hours on this dress redoing and redoing! I WILL get it right eventually! (I hope)! I love a challenge! Woo-hoo!
