Very nice. Love the color and the shoes you've styled it with. I am not at all mad that I don't have to do BA's. You seem to have it mastered! Nice work!

Love the dress, always liked this pattern and you did another amazing job with this one. I am jealous how you figure out the FBA so well. That still stumps me and keeps me from trying so many patterns. Thanks for the illustrations!
