You are either really talented when it comes to choosing patterns or have perfected the art of fitting or just really look good in dresses or all of the above. These are both very nice! Thank you for including the inside view. It helps the beginners see how nicely seams can be finished. The shape of these dresses is just right for you.

Both dresses are so cute! Love the French blue one with the sash. Your fit is so great on these too. :-)

Two lovely dresses - not a bit frumpy! I love the colour of the cord, and your use of contrast fabric is clever.

Both versions are fantastic! Better fit and better for the wallet than Anthropologie!

Darling - both versions! Did you finish the bust seams with a serger?

Superb work- even the inside looks wearable! I love both versions.

I did the bust seams with the overlock stitch on my machine. Slow going and the first time I tried it, but it worked well.

Cute, cute, cute. Love both the dresses, but I especially love the finishing on the blue one. Better sewing than Anthropologie, I'm sure!

Both dresses look great on you! And I'm totally inspired by your inside finishing work. Oh, & btw, if you still don't want to wear #1, I'll share with Time4me.....

I like both versions...the grey/green is very springlike and pretty in my opinion. Both look great on you.

You did a fantastic job on both, they really suit your figure. I'm especially fond of the blue one. :)

Both dresses look beautiful! Your construction details give it a really professional look.

Both are adorable! I agree that the green one would look much cuter with a belt. :) Love the contrast fabric on the corduroy version!
