Adorable dress!! I really love it the way it is, so I wouldn't dye it with coffee.

Oh, and I love the boots in the last picture! I've been searching for some like that--low heel, laceup, highish--and haven't had any luck. Do you mind telling me where you got them?

aww thanks, i found the boots at a thrift store for 7 dollars.  prettty good luck...i would try ebay

I love it! I wouldn't mind wearing one of these everyday in a different colour/pattern. Cheesy

I love it. I think it could look neat stained darker but I actually like it best on you as is. Is' very cute and flattering. Great job!

I absolutely love this!
I think the color is great already,
and I LOVE the pattern.
It fits you perfectly.
I can only wistfully dream of sewing something that would fit me so well. Cry

P.s.
You look like a girl I went to high school with!

That's super cute, I wouldn't age it because I have dresses that are that old and they aren't stained from age.  Plus the white is so nice and clean.  I'm so jealous of your pattern making skills.
