This suits you so well, and the style looks quite different in each variation you have made. They are all great!

Fabulous collection and a great clear description of how to achieve it. Love particularly the linen stripe and the last cocktail dress.

I love them all. Thank you for explaining your process. What a great idea finding something flattering and playing with it to find different ways of dressing it up and down. I'm still searching.

All the versions look great, I especially like the lagenlook one and the silver cocktail dress due to the hem details. Thank you for sharing in your very helpful review.

All your dresses are gorgeous. I love the asymmetrical hemlines too. Thanks for your facing tip with the metal ruler. I use mine to death but I never thought of that one!

Brilliant and so pretty! Thank you so much for all the ideas, I wear this look a lot and really like to change things up - it's fun! Your variations are marvelous, and the review is terrific.

I love these dresses on you. While I agree they may not be everyone's cup of tea, they certainly are mine! They suit you very well and (from one pear to another) I thank you so much for your careful and helpful review.

Thank you for all the helpful insights. It is a wonderful dress. Love the fabric and how changed the directions of the fabric. You look very trendy. If I show you on the street I would ask you were you bought that.

I admire your Lagenlook creations. They suit you so well and are so attractive. This review is a fabulous tutorial for making what I've come to regard as your current signature dress. Thank you for pointing out what you've considered when making variations. I feel encouraged and supported to experiment!
