I thought about how I wanted the dots when cutting the pattern out. The pink and orange bits are my favourite combination so I made sure they were on the front of both sleeves and most visible in the skirt. I wanted all of the colours in the bodice so it tied it all together. I am finding I am paying more attention to pattern layout than before and ordering a bit more fabric for checks or fabrics with distinct patterns as they really do not look as good if they are not matched up especially on the skirt. I am really pleased with how this dress has turned out, it has definitely joined the Emery dress favourites pile!
