I like the plain black dress more than the polka dots attached. But that is just my opinion Smiley If I'd see that dress in a shop, I'd buy it! Wish I could sew a dress like that.

I do love the polka dotted part, but a little black dress is the essential item for a woman's wardrobe, and this one suits you so well. if you leave it plain, you'll probably get a lot more use out of it.

Thanks for all the input!  i'll probably leave the dress as just the black dress.  after looking through my wardrobe I realized I didnt really have one that I really liked anymore.  now i do!  i'll probably try to use the polka dot material for something else.  Thanks again!

Maybe you could use the polka dot material for some sort of shrug or shawl to wear with the dress?

LOVE the dress!  I can't tell from the pictures if it is a sewing trick or wrinkly fabric, but I love it.
I got this crazy idea while looking at it that you could make a slip skirt type thing to wear underneath it that has details at the bottom where the dress ends.  The image I had was sort of a ruffle thing with a train.  Black would give it an illusion of a solid dress, but colours would be fun too Smiley  You could make a couple!  Just an idea Smiley

actually i like the polka dotted one more- maybe a bit shorter though.  both are great, but i like the pizazz of the polka dot

The polka-dot version is totally couture.  I love it, and wouldn't be surprised if someone eventually turns up in something very like it on Oscar night! You have real talent, and I hope you continue to explore design.

I love the polka dots. You should keep it like that. But if you could, you should make it removable just in case you want to wear just the black dress.

Oh, I would definately leave it alone as a little black dress. It is just too gorgeous plain. Plus, you can wear black dresses just about everywhere.

I DO like the concept of what you have done with the polka dots... but I would make ANOTHER dress with it, and possible make it monochrome... as in both fabrics are the same color, but maybe different textures. The print is also nice as it shows the dimension of it draping down, but when I look up at the straps on the shoulders, the high contrast makes them look a bit cut off. Maybe that's just me though. I am definately inspired by the way you've played with it though. Whenever I drape fabrics across myself, it looks silly, whereas you make it look elegant.

I agree that you should consider getting into the field of designing clothes and couture. You have a lot of talent from what I can see.
