Dress Design for Shabby Apple Dare to Design Contest

I very recently discovered a wonderful contest via Miss Atlanta, and as I am intensely keen about designing, love contests, and already have a sweet little spring-y dress all designed, sewed, and photographed, I am now taking the opportunity to enter the Dare to Design Contest!
 
Dress design for Shabby Apple Dresses.
 
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
 
 
This fetching frock is just the thing to don outdoors as Spring makes her charming debut.  
Timeless, retro-inspired styling incorporates flattering and feminine lines with the subtle charm of a crisp middy collar and dramatically pointed cuffs, creating an ensemble replete with classic, effortless grace.
 
 
 
 ~*~ Design Features: ~*~
 
*Figure flattering princess seams 
*Removable self-fabric belt with matching buckle
* Hidden side zipper maintains smooth back silhouette, while faux button front showcases three whimsical buttons
*Unique, face-framing middy collar
*Dramatic, retro-influnced pointed cuffs
*Rounded pockets are topped with a band, while small pleats add a distinct, charming detail
*Waist-slimming, swingy circle skirt
{petticoat is optional}
 
 
 
This dress lends itself to a variety of fabrics and materials, but I think a winsome gingham check in soft, springtime shades of cornflower blue (modeled), rose pink, buttery yellow, lavender, or leaf green would be perfect for a captivating, classic look easily spanning the warmer seasons.
