It's a beauty! And a quickie! Here's my version:
And here's a few tips if you decide you've gotta have one for yourself.
The pattern runs long... I shortened the top by 2" mostly because I didn't have enough fabric, but this length actually turned out perfect for me. The dress was shortened by a lot more.
I'm small on top, so I reduced the fullness in the bust a
teeny bit. Most reviewers have said it's perfect for larger ladies, so
if you are bigger than a B, try it out without making adjustments.
Here's the adjustment I made for mine so it wouldn't bag around the
boobs. You can see I pinched out about 1/8" between each notch on both
the facing and the front bodice. I'm pretty sure this helped and would
NOT want to see it with more fabric over the bustline.
Now there's an odd piece for the hem... facings, on a simple, drapey knit dress. I decided to eliminate the facings and just turn the hem up 1/4" and sew it. I used wooly nylon in the bobbin and regular thread on top. You could do a double needle hem, but I didn't have mine with me so I just did a simple hem. It looks fine to me. Personally, I think the faced hems would add too much bulk at the hem and might even ruin the soft, drapey look of this design.
I cut 8/10/10 corresponding to my measurements and I like the fit fine. It's loose, but still flattering.
