    absolutely love this version. i’m a total novice – please tell me how to alter it and add sleeves! do u have to change the current cut of the shoulders or just add sleeves?

    You girls or women look fantastic. Love the Zipper detail. I’m thinking this coffee-date dress may be my next project.

    I agree with the others: between the fabric choice and the zipper trim, you came up with a very different take on the dress. Those cap sleeves are great with it and you did a very good job fitting it for four different ladies. They look great!

    Having a zipper on the ruffle is a great idea! All the dresses look great!
