Classic black and white with a modern twist. I love it! You may be inspiring a few of us with this dress.

Brilliant! Removing the sleeves opens a world of options and using contrasting colors appears to be very slimming.

This looks beautiful, I can't tell if it's navy or black and white, but it is so elegant. About to start this dress, thank you so much for the neck adjustment suggestion.

I am going to have to put this one on the "to make" list as well! I never would have tried this if I hadn't seen it made up on you. I tried the Donna Karen cowl neck dress based on your recommendation and it is one of my favorites so I will give this one a try as well! Thanks so much for the inspiration! Lisa

Oh, yeah! Love this with the contrast...very classy and I agree with everyone else, you are setting a trend here! I agree, the neckline needs to be lowered a bit and I will do likewise if I make this one again...super job!

This is a close fitting dress, so you might want to go down a size depending on the stretch factor of your fabric.
