You are PRETTY AS A PICTURE in this dress, and THAT'S THE TRUTH! Believe it or not, I DON'T have this pattern, but then I suspect it wouldn't look QUITE as cute on me. And I hate to be the one to inform our readers, but the scarf wasn't all THAT wide, folks. :o) This is a ONE-OF-A-KIND dress, and I hope you get to wear it LOTS and LOTS! It's beautiful!

Megan, I would run right out and get this pattern if I had any thought that I might look like you in this dress!!!! LOL! You are just radiant is this adorable creation. I love the way the hem looks like a specialized technique with a flip, and the top is folded to perfection. Your workmanship, as always, is beautiful but I'm amazed an your designing this dress. Very couture-looking in my opinion.

This is glorious! I'm always so impressed with your ability to imagine how fabrics will go together and then to make it all work so beautifully. It really is a special skill. And you have that ace fabric-picker, Annette, sending you all these inspiring fabrics. You guys make quite a team, like Thelma and Louise! This is a beautiful dress on a beautiful young lady, and you will make a stunning impression wherever you go. I love the necklace, too!

You made such a gorgeous dress. Say, if I send you fabric that SOUNDS odd (like a scarf and faux suede), will you turn IT into an amazing MeggieLuLu orginal?? :) You are inspiring.

Both dresses are beautiful. I love Dress #1. The skirt looks absolutely perfect. Very, very nice. The embroidered dress is a completely different look, but also gorgeous. With your new hairdo, you look so grown up. So glad you found a little time to sew with your busy, busy schedule.

I love your new version of this great pattern, Meggie. This really shows how you can use the same pattern and get completely different looks from it! Your fabric choice is perfection, as always, and you are so pretty in it with your new hairdo and cool necklace and shoes! Both dresses are fantastic.

What a BEAUTIFUL dress you've design in this lovely linen with the sequins, AND the shoes and jewelry. :o) The linen behaves PERFECTLY for this dress, didn't it? I LOVE the new DO, too. :o))

Your dress is beautiful! I love the lines on the bodice and your choice of fabric for a beautiful result. Even though you are super busy with so many wonderful activities, it's great that you still squeeze in a bit of sewing! Best wishes!
