I love your dress and the fabrics you chose. You are not going overboard making another, and yes, I would LOVE to see it. And I too really, really like the pleats! TFS

Isn't color blocking awesome. I love the fabrics you chose for this version. And there is no such thing as too many dresses from one pattern. Take a look at some of my reviews if you want ideas on how to hack this pattern for an even different look. Love the pleats.
