    Oh the first one! Love it!

    As much as I love ruffles otherwise, I feel that ruffled house dresses often have a tendency coming out looking more costume-y than I am comfortable with… so I would exclude the first patten from the pick. Some people really like the "dress-up" aspect though, and if that's you then I'd say: go for the top left. 🙂

    Top left… and you could make the ruffles a bit shorter if they felt a bit 'too much'

    I like the third one right … because of it´s hollywood glamour.

    I like the floral one on the second pattern, it's lovely!

    All of them! I really like the maxi length on the first two! Can't wait to see the end result!

    Ah, that third one was the first dress I ever attempted. I didn't do too badly but, alas, I didn't take any pictures. Oh, well.

    Darn it, I like them all, but I'm going to vote for the first one because shoulder ruffles say "summer is coming!" to me, and it feels like that kind of day here.

    Oooh, I think I love the Simplicity 2275!

  • JennySlash April 26, 2011, 8:37 am

    The Simplicity (2171?) in the middle, shorter version. It looks smart.

  • Tracey April 26, 2011, 9:56 am

    All are so very nice but I really like simplicity 2275.

    2171 on the right looks the most like a real house dress to me. It's gorgeous and simple. Love it.
