This is SOOOOOOOOOOOO cute, with that NECKLINE, especially! It's PERFECT with your lavendar jacket and that necklace. And who would have ever though it could be worn as a top, too? I can't WAIT to see the NEXT versions. :o)) I'm glad the SEWING BUG has bitten you again, so we'll get to look forward to more reviews. :o)

Lovely review and pictures for the entire outfit. The colours are really lovely and flattering on you. Your dress/top doesn't look like the pattern photo at all. It looks tons better.

Meggie, this is the cutest dress/top! That brown/pink fabric is perfect (one of my favorite color combinations) and the braided neckline really makes it extra special. You're looking SO stylish with your jeans and boots and jewelry! I love the addition of the cropped jacket. You could just about wear this year-round. Very casual, cool and chic!

I love your dress/top. Lovely fabric and such stylish details as well as great ensemble. I'm truly impressed!

Miss Meggie LuLu, you have outdone yourself with the stylish ensemble, sewed to perfection then outfitted so well. I love the variety of ways you wore this one dress, and I can see why it will continue to be a favorite. Your neckline finish with the braided technique is just the best touch possible. Congratulations on a job well done!

Gorgeous. This style suits you so well and that fabric is lovely. You are right, this can definitely be an all seasons top/dress depending on how you style it.

This dress is so versatile! It's perfect with the little jacket and tights, and you can wear it right into the summer. Those heels look LETHAL! (At least they would be for me -- ha!) You should blow up one of this photos of you by your car and frame it. :o)

Both tops are very cute!!! That is a very nice style on you. Glad to hear that was only a just for fun temporary tatoo and not the real deal!!

This might be my all-time favorite of your creations, Meggie! That fabric is outstanding and it seems to have been destined for this pattern. I always love the way you put your outfits together with such a casual but chic style. This is truly a winner!

You have just outdone yourself with another variation of your dress de jour! It is another fun interpretation of your pattern and just a different look. This is indeed another winner.
