BWOF 02/2009 - 124 dress version 2

I often say that I will make a pattern again, but then new ones come out and I never get around to it.  However this is the second time I have made this dress and I'm sure there will be more.  It's so quick and easy to sew, the pattern fits without any fussing and it's right for so many occasions.  Here it is in the cobalt blue cotton twill, this fabric wrinkles quite a bit, but was so cool and comfy that I can deal with a few wrinkles.  I have my eyes half closed in the second photo, but you can see the colour better so I will put vanity aside for a moment!

This dress is still on my to-do list, thanks to your fabulous versions. I am thinking on making the bodice in a print and the skirt part in a coordinating solid.

This is beautiful on you.It fits well and looks great. I am also a "repeat offender" with patterns,as evidenced in my PR's! I love Lindsay T's suggestion of complementary fabrics.I am going to give this dress a closer look......but I have wish-to-do-list soooooo long.........

This is a great cut and color on you - great job! Could we see a pic of the back too? I think this model has an interesting back neckline, right? (Not just a jewel neck in back?) That's the part I've been wondering about. Would love to see it on you.
