Love your choice of fabric.

I think both dresses are super. I do like the sash version a bit better, but I would definitely wear it without as well. Great fabric too. I'm guessing this dress in a more fluid fabric would look great on you.

You are clearly in great shape and have amazing arms. So that is your saving grace since the rest of your body isn't showing. But the sash makes it look great too. I personally feel odd in a loose fitting tunic too! But great job!

What a GREAT dress! I much prefer it with the sash as well.....shows off your great shape! Love, love, love the bold print of your fabric. Nice work!

I will be honest with you the dress is very nice but not on you, you have great figure and you should show it off. Before reading the review I thought it was a beach cover-up, I rememberd you had made one from another review and thought you made another one. The sash helps but some darts can get rid of excess fabric...okay I'm talking too much

Your dress looks very nice. It should be comfortable in the warm weather.

I agree the sash makes it more flattering. In fact, I think it looks great on you. Do you have black fabric to make a sash from that? The fabric is gorgeous.

Your dress is so pretty and looks great on you either way.

I love this dress on you, with or without the sash. On me it would look like a sack, but it looks so elegant on your slim figure. I love the print you chose too.

I suppose it is more easy going without the sash, but so sash is so elegant. I like the groovy flower patterned fabric. Great dress

I agree that the sash makes it more flattering. I think a wide black belt would look good too. The fabric is beautiful.

I like it with the sash. I have made this dress, too. It was such a big wadder that I never even reviewed it! Yours looks so much better than mine did!

I think it looks great on you both ways.
