I keep seeing this pattern made up and it is next on my list. Love both of your versions.

This has been on my list - I absolutely LOVE how you did this - never thought about color blocking it, beautiful job!

I simply love this - so classic! I've got to sew mine up, just haven't made it yet. Thanks for inspiring as always! : )

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

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!

Very beautiful, classic color combo. I think you will see others just like it now that you have inspired us all!

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

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.

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

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