These are all just beautiful!!! I read the entire review, and I think the draped belt you made to cover your cutting mistake on your original wearable muslin is SUCH a great design element! If I ever get this KS pattern, I would incorporate that myself. I'm not sure I could make all those fitting changes you made (what patience!), but these are so beautiful, I'm willing to try!!

Love the dresses! Great job :)

I would not have guessed these dresses came from that pattern! I would call them a vast improvement over the envelope pics - what a great job, & they all look SO good on you!

Thank you for writing this review. I enjoyed reading it. You have made 3 wondeful dresses. Good luck in the competition. You are a very strong candidate!

You have achieved quite distinct looks with this becoming dress.

homewerk said...
Great job! You really captured the essence of this contest, achieving totally different looks with the same pattern view. I'm impressed and, being an apple, may have to give this 3-piece pattern a try.

Wow, great dresses!! The cinnamon wool one is awe-inspiring. And your review is also awe-inspiring -- you must have spent ages getting it this clear and thorough. :) Thanks!

These dresses look fantastic on you. You did such an amazing job on the fit, and each of your three three versions is distinctive and so beautiful.

Wow! Elegant and fantastic job sewing. I'm determined to get fit, style and pattern/fabric marriage worked out to make such lovely garments. Thank you for the inspiration!

I love your navy blue version. I can see this being a winter staple. Great job and wonderful review. Thanks for taking the time to share.

Your review inspires me to make my own dress! And I haven't tried that in many years! Thank you!

Thank you so much for your kind comments, everybody! And a special recognition to those of you who slogged through the whole review! :)

I really like how different your dresses are from one another. By using different types of knits, and by adding different design elements, you were able to create three unique looks. Nice job!

Thank you for a very detailed review. Your dresses are beautiful!

I love this, your versions look so much better than the envelope! I want the navy one!!!!!!

I love your dresses. I agree with the patience comment ;-). I have this pattern and have only made the top, but I'm definitely going to steal . . er, copy your belt idea - a nice touch. Thanks for a great review. Congratulations on the win!

You deserve to win with these 3 stunning dresses. Congratulations.

Phantastic. You did an excellent job on all three (four?) versions. I particularly love the belt detailing on the cinnamon dress and was most amused to find out is was just a piece of fabric wrapped around. If you end up designing one very much like it, please post instructions. Just looking at the pattern envelope, I wouldn't have guessed the styles would sew up so flattering. You've inspired me for some of my fall and winter wardrobe.

I love your belt/angled trim addition! it adds alot. I have to admit that I don't see the issue with the matching seams for your 1st dress...

Lovely dresses- congratulations on winning the contest! I've made the top and like it but thought the dress would not suit my distinctly apple shape. After your very helpful review I will give it a go- possibly including your lovely draped belt.
