Awesome, simply awesome. Especially love the white one. You've really shown how a change in fabric can change the whole look of the exact same pattern, which I really appreciate.

As if one fab dress wasn't enough. You sew, lost count, how many more? They are all TDF. I always love your fabric interpretations. Something, as Cindy-Lou said, boutique-ish about them.

Chris-good question! I am glad you asked. You know the bras with changeable straps? I wear one with one strap that goes around the back of my neck (I use the clear strap) and it works really well. If you can wear a strapless (I can't, it ends up around my waist) that would work too, I'm sure. Thanks so much everyone for your wonderful comments!

Love this review! all the versions are wonderful!...but *in a whisper* what are you using for undergarments? Will a strapless do?

I like the versatility of the pattern - each version you've made looks different and can be worn for a different occasion! Love that!

These garments might have evolved from the same pattern, but you made each piece a unique part of your wardrobe with various fabrics and trims. Your review was a delight to the eyes and so fun to read.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who falls for a pattern and makes multiple versions. Each one is prettier than the next.

Markie, what fantastic work! Every one of your tops and dresses is lovely. Good on you for having a pattern that works, that you love and that you keep making up in different fabrics to give different looks. I do that too!

Oh, I just love! Every one! Your bindings are very I know why I save schnippets of fabric too small to make another garment out of! Thanks!!!

I'm a sucker for seersucker--and for striped binding--and for cute cotton prints! This has all three! Great dress and your other versions are beautiful as well.

I took one look at the gallery and thought, 'Oh-- Markie1 must have made that.' So unique and little-boutique cute! I love the bias binding at the arms. Then, as if one weren't enough... BAM! We get to see LOTS more interpretations of this top/dress-- all great! uh-oh... Another pattern for me to 'need.' :)
