    I would never have thought of pairing this pattern with this fabric with that tee underneath, but it all works wonderfully well! I love the bright color of the lining! Your sewing looks impeccable.

    I guess I’m not going to say anything new: this is a wonderful dress! I originally liked the pattern too, so now you gave it a twist with making it for winter. The striped t-shirt just goes to show how many styles it can be worn! This is the fun way!! :)

    very nice job! I like the variability of this dress. There is nothing wrong with the striped T-shirt, it looks a little bit girly like. With a blouse it will be more serieuse. The idea of multifuctional is perfect. Enjoy wearing it!

    aww, the peter pan collar idea is OK, but I think the stripes are just great, too. It’s an awesome dress, in a great shape and a great fabric! You can do so much with it!

      Thank you! The readers of my blog criticised my striped T-shirt underneath a lot and suggested wearing a retro blouse with a peter pan collar.
