    I clicked on the number next to the entry – hopefully that counts my vote. While they are all really fantastic, number 9 is getting my vote for fabric choice and precise fit!

    What a tough choice! They all look fabulous and everyone has put their own stamp on the design. Just shows you, doesn’t it, that we all have a unique style and don’t want to wear the same clothes as everyone else!

    Congrats to everyone who competed! All of the makes are beautiful. Wanted to join you, but didn’t have the time, or fabric. Going to be fun to look over your designs carefully. Good luck everybody!

    These dresses all turned out nicely, but I vote for the blue velvet (#9)! It is absolutely stunning!
