I don't think I've ever SEEN such PERFECT topstitching. :o) LOVE the addition of the collar stand (and the belt with the trapunto stitching). It's PERFECT-A-MUNDO! :O)

Very stylish dress, Cindy! Your changes make your dress more stunning than your inspiration. Don't forget to update skill level- you are already at the couture level!!!

Great looking shirtdress, the topstitching really makes the dress.

Very nice dress, you did a great job on the alterations to get the look you wanted.

that is such a brilliant result, spot on for your inspiration (as if any sane person would pay $104, let alone $298 when we can create it ourselves!) and in fact I think yours looks even better. This style really suits you so perhaps you need 'just one more'?? Love it!

What a great knockoff. Looks exactly like the original. Your topstitching is just faultlessly perfect. So professional. Lovely dress and you wear it well.

A very nice dress, and a polish, professional-looking effort.

Cindy, your vision was realized by creative morphing and the result is very chic. Your precise needlework is exquisite and I particularly like your addition of the multi-topstitched belt. Very you! Lovely, Lily

All your changes were worth it - the dress looks really sharpon you, and you look very happy in it.

I really love this! A shirtdress is on my list...and you've tempted me to do denim!

All your changes turned it into a really sharp looking dress. Love it in denim. Perfect for a girls out weekend. Happy Birthday!

I really like your dress. I was all ready to add the pattern to my wish list until I saw that to get it this cute you had to do some major morphing. UGH!
