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.

A very warm thank you to Shabby Apple for hosting this wonderful contest!
