I really like both of these versions, you look great in both. (Good to know about the pockets too! Pockets are always handy.)

I do really,really like the first dress in snakeskin print but I think the color of this second version suits your hair/skin tones perfectly. Really fabulous cuff detail shown at the blog and I read that tip about the tissue paper over the flash in the comment--I'll be trying that one! (I'm pretty sure my figure won't carry off this Best of 2013 pattern, but for those of you who can wear it, what great dresses have been made from it.) By the way, I think you have chosen the perfect length for this style dress.

Lovely dress! i like the way it skims the body without being tight, and the no gape bodice is such a bonus. Great silhouette!

Looks great, Sue. Seems like an easy dress to sew and wear. That's a winner in my book.
