I love the blue jersey fabric it's made of and I also like the pattern very much. Though I must admit that this is no pattern and dress for bad days - or big lunches as it tends to showcase every little unevenness of your bodyshape. :-) You can experience this very well if you try taking pictures for your blog in it. ;-)
The pattern is Vogue1250 by Donna Karan. It's really quite lovely with pleats at the shoulders to accentuate the neckline.
The pattern emphasizes the shoulders. So if you have rather straight shoulders like me adapting the shoulder seams to less width or even short sleeves (which I did not do) would be an option. Next time I make up the pattern I'll go for narrower shoulder pieces.
I made a size 10 and it fits perfectly. The dress goes together quickly and easily and is a total pleasure to wear (except for the circumstances I mentioned above :-)). Also you don't need much fabric (only 1.2 metres for sizes 6 to 14).
This means the dress is a win for the wardobe of every woman on a good day ;-).
