This makes me want to pull my pattern out right now and try one! What beautiful dresses! Can you believe I have not tried this pattern yet?? Love all three of your dresses, especially the one that appears to have contrast piping.

Three very beautiful dresses, Christa. You look so pretty in them with the lovely fit on each and accessories to create 3 very different versatile spring to summer (actually all season) dresses. Super job!

Ha! No, Kajero, you're not the only one who hasn't made this dress, because I haven't either. Now we're both SORELY TEMPTED, after seeing all of your versions, Christa. Each one is a dream, and you look BEAUTIFUL, as always. :o)
