Great fit on you. Your redrafting is perfect. I love shift dresses for summer, but so often they can look boxy. No worries about that for this one.

Fabulous! It's a statement in casual elegance, and I love the idea of reversing a dress. On a long African overland trip many years ago, a friend turned his T-shirts inside out when they needed a wash to get more life out of them, saying, "Only dirty people wash." It's a great idea if you don't push it too far. I am sure you will always look smarter than he did. Thanks for the link to Nice Girl's tutorial - I need it myself.
