That is an outstanding improvement from your first muslin.  Well worth the effort!

Marie, what a fantastic "save"! Frumpy to funky indeed!

Your new hair style is fabulous.

And your styling is inspirational (love that turquoise necklace).

Great job and welcome to our cozy little corner.

So blessed.
So decluttered. (Shall we thank the mold which destroyed nearly everything I owned?)
So ready to start thinking about sewing again. Update...NOT!...have gone back to work full-time after a26-year hiatus to raise a family and homeschool them. Now I am trying to adjust expectations, fatigue, and need to create.

Wow!  Wonderful remake.  It takes grit to redo something you've just made and aren't thrilled with.  Love the new feathery bangs, too.

WOW  :D
If I stitch fast enough does it count as an aerobic exercise?

What an incredible difference and what a good lesson for me on what some contrast trim and length(shortening) can do.  I so appreciate your doing this and all of the ideas that people have volunteered.  What a valuable example to use in the designing process.  Thank you so much.

All I can say is "WOW"!  What a difference.  Thank you for sharing your journey with us.  I know it will give me confidence to try some changes when something doesn't turn out like I planned.

Wow!  I am so impressed by the transformation of this garment! :o  Incredible what a few basically minor changes can make.  And, I'm also so impressed now with the value of this critique forum!  What a great help everyone was with this!   :D  And Marie, I applaud you for making use of it!  I love this place already, ha!

Im late to the party too but  :o Wowza! You look amazing in that dress! I hope you've worn it all over town and impressed everyone!  Well done :)
I'd wear Chanel to a soccer match just so I could heckle the ref in style.
