I like your version of the duro dress better than the simplicity version. Very nice save.

Very attractive. Original dress was really nice, but shorter version is more in scale with your smaller body. It's fun to admire well made garments that would look dreadful on me, but look great on you. Vicarious thrill!

Your Babydoll Duro dress is so hip! I love the fabric combination and the length - it looks so nice on you.

Yep, it looks great on you! This is not a style I could carry off, but it looks fabulous on you! I do like the shorter version on you, so good call!

This length and style looks wonderful Stacy. The fabric combos work really well together. Your alterations make this a more stylish dress than the original.

I like both versions but I'm really impressed with how you "made it work" for you. Very cute! Love the fabric combo too.

Great job Stacy. It looks great on you. I think this is one of those styles that requires some fashionista accessorizing.

Excellent! Yours, IMO, is the best I've seen.

Your dress looks terrific on you! I know you prefer the shorter, but both lengths are lovely. I was going to buy this pattern, but after reading your review (re: the pregnancy comment) I decided not to LOL. There's something about floaty dresses and thin people that will elicit these comments so I know where you are coming from. Think I'll stick with a "duro" top with leggings this season :) . Thanks for the helpful review.

Your dress alterations really made this dress work for you. The original version did dwarf you but you've turned it into a really great dress.

Lovely dress! I think you did a great job by shortening it; it suits your figure better that way IMO Love the cheetah contrasting bands too - what fun!

Thanks for the tip on shortening the dress --- your technique saved the dress from looking like a sack. The finished dress looks great!
