I like the way you've used one pattern to make two such different garments. Loved them both. I've just started making this dress and your review is very helpful and encouraging.

Very cute! I love how different the two are. And I have to say I adore the top! I don't think the fabric is too stiff, it just gives it a more crisp look!

I really like the tunic with the flutter sleeves - really cute. Dress looks nice, too.

You did a wonderful job on the dresses. They fit so nicely. Glad you managed to get them done for the contest.
