Very flattering.  I understand what you mean about hemming.  It is of the devil.

Aww, that dress is adorable! I love the colors and fabrics you chose, and the bodice part is really flattering. I have the same wind problem when I make wrap skirts! I have been trying to make the pieces overlap more so that when the wind blows you just see the fabric layer underneath... but then it becomes more of a faux wrap skirt. I like your idea about the Velcro though!   Cheesy

Love this!!  I also think the bias tape looks nicer than a plain hem would.  It gives it a very crisp, almost retro feel.  Great job!!

Something about your color choice and pattern choice make that dress look like distilled sunshine.  You should be proud, and the other girls at your school will be jealous.

(Side note:  ARGH RICH SOUTHERN SCHOOL SUNDRESS PHENOMENON.  But I'm secretly happy because it gives me a chance to make sundresses.  =)  )
