What a lovely dress and lovely happy face. These are wonderful patterns and your dress in this pretty fabric is fantastic. It looks great on you. How fun is that mural in the background? You did an excellent job and I applaud your creativity in adding the organza. Be sure to post your follow-up versions.

Absolutely great. This pattern, I have to admit, hit me as dowdy in some of the fabric choices and lengths I've seen, but this is so edgy. Love it.

You really made this pattern work for YOU. It certainly didn't hurt to be photogrphed against that wonderful backdrop. I don't believe you're a 'BEGINNER'... your dress looks great on you.

Great take on this pattern! What a difference your fabrics and changes made to the overall look. Thanks for the info on the pockets too - love pockets but not extra fabric at the hips! I have this pattern in my stash. You've inspired me to get sewing on it!
