I love your dress! And thank you for explaining how you graded up at hips, I will need exactly the same adjustment, from size 14 to 18. I am still looking for the right knit for my dress :)

WOWZA! The first dress was beautiful; this one is smashing! Great use of that large-scale print. And, I think the back looks great. It's hard for you to out-do yourself, but this is pretty spectacular!

one word - WOW! on both your versions but I really like the latest one. Instant gratification is what this pattern is. This is now replacing my other instant gratification pattern textile studio madison avenue dress.

Both these dresses are spectacular, Kay! That little jig-jag that you mention on the CB seam of the skirt really isn't noticeable. I had to look twice to even see what you meant. These both look amazing on you and of course the construction is stellar!
