This is SO cute on you! I can only long to be as chic as you in this fabulous, artsy (but not too artsy) dress. I LOVE the way you've used the dual stripes. :o)

What a great dress on you! Love the addition of the sleeves, and you've picked a perfect combo and placement of the stripes. Love it!

Very nice use of the two different stripes. Your dress is very stylish. I also liked that you added color with the scarf and the shoes. You are a very well dressed lady:)

Oh this is lovely. You've sold me on this pattern - I've looked at it a few times and wondered if it would turn out shapeless, but yours is really flattering.

Very chic, very flattering. I like the cap sleeves, and the tucks to the bottom hem. You have a home run with this dress. :-)

It looks great, Barbara! I really like the mixing of the two stripes and your tucks at the hem are inspired. I also like the cap sleeve and would imagine that really works for your climate.

What a cool dress you've made! Great use of fabrics. The loose fitting design is not at all overwhelming - you look fab!

Thank you! Marci, it was a disappointment to miss. I was with my family at the beach that weekend. The pictures and report obviously revealed it to be a wonderful PR gathering. I would have enjoyed seeing you and everyone again!

Marcy and Sandra--combined they are unbeatable--and this is a wonderful result. Had hoped you might be at PR weekend in SF! Marci
