Lovely results on this dress! It looks quite tailored yet a tad fun and feminine.

Beautiful dress! I hadn't looked twice at this pattern before, but your version has me sold. Great job with learning the new techniques too!

Oh those ruffles!! I've been following this project on your blog and the finished dress is really gorgeous. I'm scared of all those special feet that came with my new machine but you have inspired me to get them out and practice. It really does make all the difference between a good finished product and a GREAT one.

Great job on those rolled hems. This inspires me to practice more with my rolled hem foot.

Your dress is divine. The shape suits you beautifully. Wow it would certainly have been short if you had followed the instructions for that 3 inch hem! Totally agree with crazygrad - how much do you want for it?

You totally rock this! The navy makes it look less frilly, more perfect and fabulous. Love your details loke the rolled hem. It lays very well, great job.

Beautiful dress! You have made giant strides in sewing skills over the years--really quite impressive. I remember when you used to take photos creatively using a paper towel and twisty thingy to hold the camera--and now it appears you have a Wolf dressform, a well-deserved reward. This dress looks couture--seriously!

Your version is much more elegant than the pattern's! Your dress turned out beautifully. Those ruffles are gorgeous. I'm sorry you're not happy with the back...could a fitting buddy help tweak this for you? Love it!

I LOVE your version! Such an improvement on the pic for the pattern--- that looks like a sweatshirt with the sleeves cut off and a tit ruffle added. I give it a guffaw, but I might buy yours.
