Wow, what a great idea with the boat neck; so classy! This was the first dress I ever made, and now I'm thinking of going back and making it with a different neck line. Your sister looks fantastic.

This dress is beautiful! I love the neckline; I have wide shoulders, too, and I agree that a boat neck can be really flattering. Your sister will definitely be the star of Alumni Weekend.

Ohhhhh, thanks. You all are the best!!! Sweetiebop, I totally agree, the neckline is so simple and great. Especially with the wide shoulders the happen to run in the family. Thank for commenting.

1st of all, your sister is just as beautiful as you. 2nd of all, I love what you did with this dress. The sleeve and neckline changes along with the fabric makes this dress more attractive than what it is on the pattern envelop. I bought the pattern months ago so I will be making it. I also love that belt.
