Your version looks fabulous! I made this with a knit a few months back and I like the idea of removing some extra fabric from the neckline.

Your version of this dress looks fabulous! Next time I make this I am going to remove some of the excess fabric from the neckline too. The shorter version makes a lovely silhouette.

I love it as it is on you. It works much better than the magazine cover photo, which does have that baby bump look. Yours looks casual and cool. Nice colour too.

This is a beautiful dress. The changes you made make it look so much better than the magazine cover. Nice beach shots too!

What an exquisite, beautiful dress! It looks like it came from a high-end boutique. Everything about it is perfect. I'm so glad you persevered with this pattern and dress. Loved your blog entry and learning about some of the characteristics of shot rayon.
