WOnderful! I love how you have chevronned the stripes together on the front skirt piece and of course the ruffles at the neckline make this dress fabulous.

I like the way the stripes go in the seersucker version. But the silk one is so chic!

i love both your dresses, and each one has such a different personality. the chevron effect from the stripes is great. Is the skirt of the shantung version cut on the bias also?

ElizabethDee, the gold dress skirt is cut on the straight grain fold. I only cut the seersucker skirt front on the bias as two pieces because it was the only way to fit all the pieces into the fabric... but I'm happy with the result. :)

Wow! both are lovely dresses, but the seersucker is truly adorable. Such a great look, even if it did start out a muslin. You've inspired me. :D
