Wow! Thank you all for the wonderful comments. As a self-taught seamstress I’m still hesitant to say “I made this” but you’ve given me a big dose of confidence. Thank You! Plus, I love the ideas coming in for the this dress. Making the skirt in a contrasting color, asymmetrical hemlines, cap sleeves, long sleeves, modesty panel and so much more. Plus, a big Thank You to Nancy and her team. Thanks for giving me and Sew News the opportunity to make the dress and share it will all you fantastic readers!
And, please check out the other bloggers and their fantastic take on Nancy’s knit patterns.

…would love to learn new tricks to making it work for me. In this Santa Fe dress, I love how it’s a V-neck, but still gives plenty of coverage. I bet the bust seam could be dropped and look really cute over a contrasting top
Okay Rhonda, best be getting sewing! I would love to see your creations and how you mix it up! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address. Additionally, you can join Sewing District and post your creations there!
