On to Round 2

Recently, I submitted my Sutton Blouse, by True Bias, to the judges for Round 1 of the Super Online Sewing Match, hosted by Sew Mama Sew
All of the contestant's blouses were beautiful and I could tell each seamstress did their best. This is a tough competition. I was chosen to move on to Round 2 and now we have a new challenge!!! The sewing pattern for round 2 is the Marianne Dress by Christine Haynes!! When I read the pattern for this challenge, I jumped out of my seat! I adore Christine Haynes and all of her designs! She is a wonderful pattern designer, so I knew this would be a great dress! I have her first book Chic and Simple Sewing, it is truly amazing. You know it is a great book when you make several apparel pieces from it. I made the jacket, cape, wrap skirt and school house shift dress. I also interviewed Christine in March of 2011. Wow, that was four years ago!
I am looking forward to making this beautiful dress. I love View A with the pan collar, however View B with the cute cuffs looks like something I would wear all of the time! This might be harder than I thought so many choices. What view would you make?? I am still bouncing off the walls with delight.
