This is absolutely ADORABLE, Christa. Last night after I asked which pattern it was, it DAWNED on me and I realized I have the same pattern -- ha! I love the way you've styled it in each photo, too. You're an inspiration with your photos. I'm lucky if I can drag my sorry butt in there in the bathroom to snap a blurry picture in the mirror. :o)) You really SHOULD make more from this pattern. It's a true winner: comfortable AND oh so cute!

I forgot: You should make those pants, too!

Must agree with all of Annette's posts. You absolutely can style a classic dress so well. That is one of the beauties of wardrobe basics, IMO. Your workmanship is perfect and the dress looks great on you. BTW, I like this shade of green on you. It's also great that you now love your new dress.

I love this- a favorite pattern in a very rich rendition- I love the texture with it.

Very nice Christa - you sure style it very well!

What a versatile piece! Looks great on you and I love the way you styled it. Beautiful!!!

This colour and style is most flattering on you. Great choice and I also love all the styling that you have tried with this dress. It just shows how multitalented you are. Looking forward to seeing further creations from this pattern. Perfect!!!

I love your reviews Christa! This dress looks great with the scarf and belt too. Annette is right, you should make the pants. I did awhile back and they are a wonderful pattern.

Really cute! I love it!

What a very cute pattern and your version is lovely with the special fabric and pretty color. The many ways you have styled it show how versatile the dress can be and how creative you are with fashion!

I couldn't agree more with what everyone has said. The style of the dress skyrockets when you add your accessories. I especially like it with the leggings, scarf & belt. The color is really pretty and you look really pretty in it!
9/25/11 11:25 AM
Very pretty and I love the accessories you chose to put with it - the color is great for you - I like it both belted and unbelted - this sure is a go anywhere do anything kind of a dress depending of what you wear it with - a real plus in the wardrobe

This is so cute the way you put everything together. Love all the details, I have to get this pattern now that I see how you styled it.

What a difference a few changes in accessories make - I really like it with the grey belt, leggings and the print scarf. I like all the little details on the dress as well, they make for a great finished garment.
9/26/11 9:36 AM
Oh I so agree with everyone here, this is absolutely adorable!! You have to make it again!!

I love your dress and the way you styled it. I always have the hardest time narrowing down to which patterns I want to buy but you've definitely inspired me to get this one.

Really nice and helpful review on this very cute young dress! I like the various ways you show it. Wondering how this would look made up in a fairly firm but light knit.
10/14/11 1:10 PM
Thanks so much for all the very nice comments! Batik, I think that it would work great for a stable knit like Ponte.
10/14/11 6:41 PM
I LOVE your red/white checked, OH-SO-CHEERFUL dress with the floral trim. And lest I forget the SHOES ... AND the earrings? This is a darling outfit, and comfy, too! :o)

Great pairing of the fabrics - makes for a gorgeous dress, Christas. You look great in both versions.
10/17/11 11:05 PM
This dress is a fabulous classic and you have styled it wonderfully. There should be many versions of this in your future.
10/18/11 9:12 AM
love what you've done with this one...the belt just makes it pop!
10/18/11 10:02 AM
Christa, you have done it again!!! The Lisette pattern is a winner and you have updated it/styled it in such an amazing way. I notice some cute red heels with your red belt and buttons--just setting the whole ensemble off perfectly. This is another winner in my book.
10/18/11 10:10 AM
What a great ensemble! And looking at your different versions, I'm thinking I need this pattern - it seems so versatile!
10/18/11 10:40 AM
You know, I think I'm going to buy every one of these Lisette patterns based on your super cute results.
10/18/11 12:29 PM
That is SO cute! Maybe I'll have to give this one another look...
10/18/11 7:40 PM
The dress is so pretty. I love Gingham. I would have never thought to have blended the two fabrics together. Look how awesome that turned out. Too cool!
