I have had a couple of friends work this so I don't really need any testers but if you do work the pattern please let me know how it turns out or if there are any adjustments I need to make

I would definitely say it is a more simple pattern than some. I have created many versions of this dress over time with different variations but I love the yellow and white for summer. Please, if you try it, feel free to ask me to clarify anything for you. You can check out more pics here http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=328853&id=762500690&l=1ee31de0d2
