    Without a doubt it would be Elaine May’s Coffee Date dress! I found it easy to make and also adaptable to all sorts of different necklines, waist-band treatments, lengths… lots of room for creativity and personalization.

    The Kiki is still one of my favorites. Perfect combination of feminine and playfulness. Also a good one to alter with different colors and textiles.

    I would definitely go for the: Chiffon maxi dress with “jeweled” neckline #101, I love the ‘movement’ of the dress and I think that it looks great when launching my fashion line.

    I’d go with Anda — basic, yet lovely.
