Great dress! I like your idea of making a bigger casing for the waistband. I feel inspired to make another version of this dress! :)

Speaking as one who did not take to the maxi dress trend, may I say that your dress is beautiful. What great vision you had to turn this pattern into such a lovely and flattering dress. It elongates your figure so.

Very pretty! I've wondered about converting a street length dress to a maxi dress and never tried. I'm glad to see how you did it.

Much prettier than the pattern envelope. I love the animal print and the length. You look great in it.

Fabulous! Your version looks much more distinctive than the pattern envelope version.

You look as cool as a cucumber in this wonderful maxi length dress. Now if you can pull that off in July/August, you've definitely got a winner of a dress! Oh--thanks for showing how you handled the facing at the curved neck edge and the 5/8 inch turn under on the straight way. Also, I really liked reading about the thought process concerning the elastic width and casing. (I pay attention to these things--I really do! And I bet other people do, too.)

I think both of yours are much better than the pattern envelope!
