Great job! Both of these dresses look great on you! The time spent on fitting issues was well spent!

Wow- the grey version looks so comfortable, but so classic. Gorgeous!

LOVE the gray version- either you've lost weight, or the fabric is very flattering. I also really like the front pleats in the gray version, I hadn't even noticed them in the red dress.

If I had noticed this contest, you would have gotten my vote! I think this dress is adorable.

Very pretty! The ruffle makes a nice detail on the simple lines of this dress.

Great dress! I love the contrast inset and how you finished the ruffles. The fit looks very nice!

Very cute! I love the print you chose! Thanks for the helpful review - I have little patience for so many alterations so, its probably best I leave it alone for now, though it was on my wishlist. You did a great job pushing through yours though! I would have never guessed you had any issues with it.

Great job converting your dress to a knit fabric and making it work for an off-grain print.

Terrific review. I love flounces and yours look great. Perfect fabric choice. I hope you enjoy your free pattern.

Very cute dress, that is pretty enough to wear for Valentine's day, let alone household chores!

This is such a pretty dress! Love the print, it's perfect for that contest. And you look great in red!

zoe yes, the ruffle edge was done on a serger. I couldn't resist how quickly it could do this edge. zoe & nickle624 great minds... I can't wait to see your dresses.

love your dress. I'm making the same one for the contest....same pattern, not fabric. great minds...

Your dress looks beautiful on you! Well, I'm still working on mine ( slow going as I only can do some each Saturday). I too, ( as I told you ) struggled to fit the bodice. Mine is in a handkerchief linen, and those ruffle's tiny hems do take some time! Yours look nice; (I assume that may be from a serger?) Great job!

Very cute on you.

Love that you used a knit. I just picked up this pattern and may have to try it in a knit.
