P.S. What is "Tsnius clothing"? Is that a Hebrew word for "modest"? Just curious! :-)

I LOVE IT!
It's fantastic - the collar is amazing, love the seam down the middle of the skirt, and the bottom trim too.  Great job!

I wanted to thank everyone for all the lovely comments. It is so nice to here other opinions. When I work on something myself it can get so frustrating when things don't go just right. Sometimes when i'm done all i can see in it is my frustrations ( you know the seam you had to rip out a million times, the uneven hem, etc.)sometimes you need more eyes. Thanks again. i also added a tut in my bog on how to add sleeves to dresses without.
Lastly, yes tznius does mean modest in Hebrew for those of you who asked.

Well, Tznius (or Tzniut in the Sephardi and Israeli pronunciation) is actually a noun - it's Hebrew for 'modesty', so really we should be talking about "Tzanua" clothing (tzanua = modest, the adjective). But we English speaking Jews have our own special way of speaking Hebrish Smiley

Frum without a hint of frumpy..
I find that too many tzniut dress lean either to little girl styles in a grown up size or too too staid grandmother styles; I dont want to look like I never let go of childhood or that Im wearing a (dull) sack.
Your gown is stylish, flattering and utterly hip
A smart company would have you designing tzniut dresses...I know my SIL would have wept with joy to have found similar dress for her bridesmaids Smiley
