This dress looks terrific on you. Cleverly designed and very flattering in both style and color! I'm adding this to my list of favorite nicegirl outfits. How you run these up so fast I have no idea!

That dress is still on my list of patterns I want to make, and now I really remember why. I love how you played with the stripes, and while it is a change-up colorwise for you, it looks good. It's striped, it's dark, but it's definitely not stodgy.
