Really nice style on you, your fabric is truly beautiful. and that Hello Kitty Sewing Machine could not be more fun. Sounds like we have the same husband they just come along and know how things work. Hum is this going to be Your machine or Heathers? LOL

Well, I like all three of these but find the colors of version 2 particularly stunning on you and slightly psychedelic-- not sure if that was your intention, but looks great! Enjoy that adorable new sewing machine!

" I cut out 4 "protractor" shapes of themed fabric on the bias." Too funny! I love all your versions but the last one is the best!

All versions are lovely, beautifully sewn and look ever so perfect on you!

A real TNT pattern for you! I love them all. What a difference the fabric makes! Your color-blocking idea is fantastic, so clever! Thanks for the review.

I like the protractor-shaped inset fabric--how fitting for a math teacher. All great projects!

Great work, and great contest entry. Good luck! I know you will be enjoying those dresses - all so very pretty on you.

Great dresses and also congratulations on not being afraid to play around with the additional fabrics. I love the "protractor" pieces, they look really good. I think you're right about the wide band, (it still looks good but creates a boxier shape than the others). Would it be hard to change to a narrow band? Or maybe break it up with a black belt? I'd hate to think you weren't going to wear it!

What terrific imagination you have to make such dramatically different dresses from one pattern! I love them all!
