This dress looks very nice on you. You did a great job fitting it, and the color looks very pretty on my monitor. I actually like it better as a summer dress without the shirt under it. I'm sure your co-worker will love wearing it.

cute dress. I think the way I've seen that neckline done is to sandwich the collar between the yoke pieces, which sounds opposite of what this pattern has you do.

Trina, I think it's time to move your skills designation up a notch. Your jacket is awesome. The fit is perfect and I love those cute little sleeves.

I like the pattern. I have lots of wool in my stash and it would be perfect for winter.

Looks fine to me but I know how you feel. Once you feel that way about a project even the magic closet won't help. Lucky co-worker!

I think it's cute, too, and I also don't see the issues with the color(s) in the photo.

The dress is cute. Not the cutest you have done you know, but cute. :)

You are being way to hard on yourself. You look precious in this dress, with and without the blouse underneath. I've always found the more "fitted" I try to make seersucker, the harder it is to manage. It works best for me, in a loose fitting shirt or swishy dress. I'm sure your co-worker is going to love wearing this.
