I love all your different versions! And you style them so beautifully with the belts, shirts and leggings. Great wardrobe.

Love both versions - you had great vision pick these fabrics with (what looked like to me) a pretty meh pattern.

I love how you showed versatility with the 2 versions - they look great! You are making me have second thoughts about this pattern, and must not buy any more patterns.

Your dress is lovely and the perfect example of versatility. Thanks for the eye-opener. Helps me to think outside the box more often!

Both versions of this dress are very pretty.

This is a deceptively stylish dress for such a simple design. I love your styling as jumper with a shirt.

So very darling. Easy to make, easy to wear, and good looking; I could definitely buy into this pattern.

Wow, I love your dress! I love 'jumpers' or a dress with a blouse underneath. So very cute!

Very cute ! I just made this. I never thought about wearing a blouse underneath. Great idea. I can't wait to try that.

Very pretty dresses, I will have to give this pattern a second look.
