Re Becca said...
I love what you did with that fabric. That pattern envelope picture looks so plain compared to your dress, you have a good eye for possibilities. I love the fit too. When you altered the back neck, did you have to change the collar to compensate? That sounds very interesting to me. I like your collar much better.

Re Becca, Yes when I altered the back neck , I added about 1/4" to the collar band, because the alteration added width to the back neck

And that is how it is done! Great fabric choice with that pattern. I WISH I could do that, you look fantastic in that. I also love the red accessories.

The dress is beautiful; you look great in it! I like your collar size better than the larger one in the pattern. Your fabric is gorgeous, and I like your longer length.

Great dress and so flattering! I like your modified collar and haven't been drawn to the pattern because of the original color. I love the silhouette, so I'm adding it to my wish list! Tanks for helping me see the possibilities!
