A few years ago, I posted a housewife dress that I made, and you can see it here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=286542.msg3246961#msg3246961
But, I can't make the same thing for too long, but I can't get away from the beauty of the button-up front.  so I've moved on to using vintage button-ups as a basis for the bodice, putting lace cutouts in the back, and using vintage prints for the skirts...what do you guys think?
1. Tuxedo Style Mod


2. Rodeo Floral Cowgirl


3. Gingham Housewife With Bow Sash


4. Diamond Lace Cutout with Striped Sheeeeer Goodness



I was going to put up another, but I don't wanna crash all yall's computers.  Any suggestions for how these could be made better?  I can take critiques!

Unfortunately I don't have any helpful suggestions, to me these are already perfect. I really (x 1000) want the first one. You. Are. Fantastic.
