March 21,2012: I believe there is an errata in the pattern. On page 4, it says: BACK LEFT SIDE K10 3 times. It should be 4 times to match BACK LEFT SIDE.
April 8: When I ironed the dress, it looked so much better and I gained 6” in length! Awesome! I have deviated from the pattern a lot by adding more skirt flare with seeding stitches. I decreased the sleeves flare, so I can put cardigans without bulging. For those who wonder how to decrease flare for these particular sleeves, just simply do less repetitions b/w sleeve markers (instead of 7 reps for small sizes, I would do 3-4).
Another modification I have done is the trim. I did not do pansy flowers, instead I did circles and half circles with a crochet hook.
The yarn was an absolute pleasure to work with! I will buy more of this yarn in future. The pattern was easy to remember and easy to fix if a mistake was made. Highly recommend this pattern if you like 1 piece dress and want to avoid sewing.
