Very nice, I love the look and you have almost inspired me to take a look at the Project Runway patterns.

I love this dress, I love all the dresses you make. I almost never use "in print" patterns, but I want this one. The severity of the lines delights my inner Puritan. Maybe in lightweight red wool... Or a crisp green linen... Ooh the possibilities, thank you. I wonder how it would look with two tiny soft pleats in the front, just looking at Nicole Kidman's frock I think it has them. I wonder if soft pleats and bright colors would mortify the Puritan?
