Great staple for flirty fun or office swish.

I have made this dress twice now, once in a slippery peach skin and once in an Oxford cloth. I love both versions. I think the fit is great for plus size ladies. I love that it's got a traditional collar option and how the sleeve is finished with a band. My peach skin version has a gathered skirt and a band collar. My Oxford cloth version has the pleated skirt and traditional collar. I really appreciate how versatile the feel of the dress is from the pattern based on the fabric I chose. Definitely a wardrobe winner for me.

Such a pretty dress!

This is the first Lenox I have made, and I'm really pleased with it. It's a lovely dress to wear, the sleeves are a nice length, the two collar options are both really pretty, and pockets, yay pockets! I used a soft rayon, which gives a nice swish through the full skirt. The princess seams are super flattering over the bust, and if you haven't sewn them before, not only are the pattern instructions nice & clear, there is also a sew along online to help. Now for a chambray version...

Great Shirtdress!

I've made two of these so far and will be making more, I'm sure. The instructions are very clear and Carrie offered great advice on fit questions. I am much larger through hips and waist than up top and the help I got from Cashmerette on how to alter the pattern was invaluable. I've gotten lots of compliments on this dress!
