Great Little White Dress Contest entry. I like the ways you demonstrated how to change it for the different occasions. Wearing items under, as well as over, to change the look is very clever. Your beaded vest will get heads turning to look twice when you wear it. I appreciate the warning about the collar. I would save this pattern for a time when I am not easily frustrated and discouraged.

Great shirt dress. I wouldn't have realised it came from this pattern.

I like shirtdress idea for a LWD. It seems so appropriate. And yours turned out very nicely!

Eyelet! Love it! I agree that yours looks much better than the pattern photo. Congratulations on a fantastic dress!

I do the same thing with buttons, I like to use different colors, styles and shapes, and yours are a nice detail. The dress is a wonderful base for many looks. I hope you feel better soon.

I like yours so much better than the pattern cover picture--I never would have considered this one, but now it's on my list. Great job.

Beautiful dress! This textured fabric seems ideal for this dress pattern.

Yay! I'm glad you were able to review it in time. I love how versatile it is. Especially with the black slip underneath!

This is a lovely style on you. I agree that today was no good for pictures in the garden. Too much wind. But you did manage in time for the contest. Hope you recover soon from the flu
