Layla Rae is a V-neck sleeveless dress perfect for those hot summer days. Princess seamed cutouts on each side of the bodice are great for color blocking, or add a bit of piping along the edge to make them stand out. The bodice comes together beautifully into a point right at the hip.

Instructions were good and the pictures were helpful also. It turned out very nice.
Fun dress to make. Will put in diagonal insets next time. Lots of possible fabric combinations with this pattern.
This was the perfect project to take my mind off the news. Well, actually, it didn't. I was hoping for a distinctive color scheme on my dress - recognize it? I found the pattern easy to follow and all those angled seams lined up well. I topstitched the blue fabric ribbon over the waist seam after the dress was constructed and added a bow to emphasize the blue and yellow color color scheme. I saw the other testers' outfits and really enjoyed seeing all the different color, pattern and trim variations. They all look so different.
