Dress in a day

Today, Saturday, I made the Crepe Dress designed by Colette Patterns.
It says "beginner" - I think it's for an advanced beginner!
I love Colette's pockets; they're perfectly shaped.
The fabric was bought in Stoffmarkt in Bielefeld in Germany recently. It's 100% cotton (Baumwolle).
It's a wrap dress. But wraps at the back as opposed to the front.
I liked the pattern but might prefer to make a lining for the top part instead of all the facings. And I think the seam in the front of the dress makes it a bit apron-y so I might use one piece here next time.
I like this dress. Murphy Sheehy stocks Liberty prints which might work well for this dress. I think it's probably nicer with a contrasting fabric for the belt.
