    Love yours the best!

    I have made this dress twice for other people. The first time I used white seersucker for the front and red striped seersucker with embroidered cherries for the back and skirt. The second was navy and white. NOW I'll have to make one for myself, because that really is one cute dress.

    Another great dress. I can't decide which of your two entries looks prettier. Your use of color is wonderful. Perfect for a stroll in the garden.

    Very nice! I have made this dress twice, once for my daughter in law and one for myself. Lots of compliments. I love your choice of colors too!
