The Zina B Dress

I have been working on this dress off and on for about 6 months now. I keep making changes, hanging it up, coming back to it, adjusting things here and there.
Here is where the dress stands now.

I finally got someone that could model it for me too. It fits me but looks better on Clara. :o)

It is called the Zina B because when my mother saw it for the first time it reminded her of the dress her grandmother Zina B Cannon wore all the time. She said that Zina had it made in several bright cottons and that it also had a white collar. I am thinking of adding that to a future version.
Anyway, here are some more pictures of it. I also made an under dress to keep it modest. hee hee.

Lucy,
That is a lovely dress! So pretty and looks comfortable to wear.
Are you going to write a pattern for it?

Ok so I am a big dork when I saw the mock ups you did on the Apronista I thought they were aprons and I liked the thought of a wraparound apron.

That dress is so cute! I wish I could make a dress for myself like that and have it turn out that great!
