Wow! Your dress is gorgeous. You are right that fabric wanted to be a maxi dress.

I only wish I'd had the foresight to think of a MAXI DRESS -- ha! You are truly STUNNING in this dress, Christa. You look like you just stepped out of a high-end boutique -- like Minnie Pearl, with the tag still hanging on your dress -- ha! I love EVERY MAXI INCH OF IT!

Beautiful. Great job. How did you bind the neck? I've never done it that way. Thx

A great dress on you. The cut of neckline and back are so sporty and flattering. It's great to look dressed up in a garment that is as comfortable as pajamas. Nice work!

Both dresses look fabulous on you! Great job and fabrics!

That looks so fabulous on you! I muslined the dress yesterday and I'm not sure if it looks very good on my figure because I have fuller thighs which the fabric seems to cling too. It totally bums me out since everyone is making darling dresses from this pattern. Love the fabric - Annette sends you such awesome pieces!

Beautiful dresses, and you look fabulous in both versions.

Va Va Voom as they said back in the day! You look stunning in these dresses - love both but fell head over heels for the bright pattterned one since that's all my colours. I am going to make a maxi but not this pattern - I would need to somehow get a lovely figure such as yours - me I think would look real far from lovely!! so oing for one with a more flowing skirt

CraftAddict said...
Both versions look great!

Great dress! Looks wonderful on you.

Beatuiful maxis! No wonder you are sewing another one already!

You look great in that dress and just love your coverstitch trim.

You look totally fabulous in this dress and I really like the back view too. What a lovely friend you have in Annette.

mrsnodders said...
It looks so great! I made this dress also, but I should have just made the 2 piece version because I see so many versions, like yours, that look came out so well! Mine ended up a mini and not a maxi because I messed up on cutting all of the different pieces on one of the other views!

Amazing dress in every way- color and fabric choice with your coloring, fits you like a glove, love how you used one stripe of pattern for the binding (looks so professional) and your accessorizing is lovely as well! You made a home run on this one!
