Fabulous Grace Kelly?

Hello Pattern Lovers, 
  I was strolling through Facebook the other day and was stopped dead in my tracks by this photo!

The grace, the elegance, the fabulous illusion given by the color blocking, the comfort of the design amazed me. But not as much as the fact that a dress like this can come from a pattern that looks like that.

  7. So true, this dress was part of the collection that travelled to a few museums around the world a few years ago and in person, its well, blah. Bad polyester and white has yellowed a little. The photo does it way more justice.
