Well this is so cute I've gone and ordered the pattern. It's great as a shirt rather than dress.

Great outfit. Love the way you handle the plaid in the design of your shirt.

Well, it might not be what mom wants to hear, but the men don't get tired of pigtails, I'll tell ya! Started wearing them at my previous job in my mid-30's and was a curiously popular hairstyle choice...

I can see why you love this! What a great job you did on the front placket and on matching the plaid. It looks great.

Move over Carrie U and Taylor S, we got ourselves a shining star! You are such a clever young lady to take a classic and make it current and chic! The boots, hat, pigtails, and your ADORABLE smile....too cool!

Your wonderful fabric brings out the interesting details of this clasic style. You did a terrific job. I love the ensemble and those kickin'-hot boots!

The yoke detailing is very precise. The plaid matching is excellent on the back. You are a talented seamstress!

You look great Meggie! My daughter, (your age) has to dress as a cowgirl tonight for an 18th Birthday party! Very inspiring.

Love your outfit and you were right ~ it has a great western look. You have such a great eye for what will work; your garments suit your to a "t". Your Mom is right ~ things were fitted everywhere except when they were sack-like and even then the arms were fitted.

Great top and great review Meggie! LOVE the pigtails!

Adorable outfit! Love how the bias yoke turned out.

You are the swingingest, cutest cowgirl ever, I'm sure! Watch out for those Oklahoma cowboys. That is a great looking blouse and I love the pattern matching you did on the bias yoke. It's perfect! I'm envious of those boots. Who knows, you might start a trend and next thing you know we'll all be posing in cowboy boots and pigtails!

I LOVE this outfit. What great VISION you have, to think it up in the FIRST place. OF COURSE, the execution is SEAMLESS. Get it? Ha-ha-ha-ha! If only Mom and I had thought of this, WE could be YEHAWING RAT NOW! I'm afraid we wouldn't look QUITE as cute as you do though, PIGTAILS AND ALL! Maybe your Mom's just JEALOUS of the pigtails. Tell her next time she does a review, we can put HER in pigtails, then she'll feel better about the whole thing. YEEEEEEEEEEEHAAAAAAAAAW!!! EXCELLENT review and outfit!
