Love the bold print, and making this a maxi. Looks awesome on you.

Marji, the red and white dress looks fantastic on you. I think your obi sash did wonders for the silhouette. It helps curtail that maternity look very nicely. The contrast prints is wonderful too.

Great maxi-dress! I really like how you used the border print for an obi-belt.

I think this dress is really charming and not at all maternity. To the contrary, it draws the eye to your shapely legs at this very flattering length. Lovely. - Lily

The dress looks great. If you hadn't mentioned it, I wonder if I would have noticed the stripe effect before I cut my blouse out! Thanks, it really is obvious when you look for it. Perfect for walking on the beach.

I love your dress. I have the same "maternity" phobia, but I'm encouraged. Your dress looks really pretty, neat and comfortable!

What a cute dress. I don't think it looks "maternity" at all, the print is darling. You did a really nice job

Like you said - this dress will be great for the beach! I do like the band you inserted - gives it a whole new look.

Love the dress, especially love the new print created by the pleating.

I don't think it looks "maternity" on you, but a lot of these patterns do IMHO. You really adapted this well. Thanks for the review and mention of the changes you made.

It looks lovely and not maternity like at all. Good work on getting it to fit with the fabric you had.
