    I love your dress. I have almost the exact same dress from H&M! However, your fabric is prettier & your dress will last far longer than anything from H&M.

    Hello! I was researching simplicity 2403 and came to this page. I like your version with a full skirt! I just finished View B, you can view it here

    Great dress. What a classic you have created. There is nothing I would change and the fit is super flattering. I love your arrangement of the fabric lines for the shoulders etc. You look like you love the dress!

    cute! I just made this one too, except with different sleeves. I like how you shortened up the sleeve from the one they provided in the pattern, and your skirt variation is great!

    Very cute. I like the fabric, and the little gathers in the back are so sweet. Great job.

    I really like it. Was the top a shirt then? I have a shirt pattern I want to make into a dress like this and I think you might have given me the key! Thankyou!!

      Hi! The top is still based on real dress pattern (Simplicity 2403) that consists of a bodice and skirt bits. I only took the bodice from that pattern, coz the skirt looked like a pencil skirt and did not really go with what I had in mind. But yeah, I was looking for the right bodice for a while and thought I just make it out a shirt, until I found that pattern.
