View B, great beginners project. Photos show dress right before I added the zipper, and then after finishing the hem and adding the zipper. I added a hook and eye closure to the top of the zipper, but had already photographed it.

Material Notes

    I love the fabric & I bought that pattern last summer — I’m going home to make it now before the weather turns cold! Good job.

    Have to trot this out to make it official….

    You win the “It’s so sharp I’d wear it, and I’m a guy!” award.

    The juxtaposition of the print, the style, and that unquantifiable attribute which makes this dress something special – all worked together to make you the big winner.
