Pattern 2 of 20:  Anna Maria Horner Roundabout Dress

I know what you must be thinking.  Why would I choose this pattern?  The dress doesn't look very flattering or really cute compared to all of the other choices hanging in my store.  No offense to Anna Maria Horner or this model, but nothing about this picture makes me want to sew this.  When Brooke, the other owner of the store, suggested I sew this pattern, I thought she was joking.  But then she flipped the pattern over and showed me the really cute shirt option I could choose.  It is the last pattern on the right in the picture below (found on the back of the pattern).

I chose to sew the shirt with a cotton voile since it will be cooler for summer, but I am using a knit for the band at the bottom instead of cotton.  I like the stretch of a knit around the waist, and it tends to look more flattering on me. 
I'll cut this out tomorrow, and hopefully have it sewn by Saturday!  I am not fully convinced that Brooke is right about this pattern, but I hope that I will end up loving it!
